Our fellowship program requires 24 hours of assessment per week. These typically consist of:
Outline of original research project, grant proposal or outcome assessment written in first year and carried out in second year. Presentation at national or international meeting is encouraged.
The second year will depend on the fellow's clinical interests and career trajectory. This additional year could be used for further clinical subspecialization.
Major Rotation: Pediatric Neuropsychology Clinic (outpatient and Inpatient)
Research is an important component of this residency, with residents expected to devote a minimum of 20% of their time to the research opportunities provided within the educational and research programs of Akron Children's NeuroDevelopmental Science Center.
You can accomplish this through a variety of means, including archival studies and involvement within current research protocols. Akron Children's center also has a director of research to support providers in their research endeavors.
Some of the ongoing research opportunities include:
Fellows will make regular teaching contributions to the weekly Behavioral Neuroscience Seminar and facilitate the monthly Journal Club and Neuroanatomy Review series. There will also be opportunities for supervision of psychology interns or advanced externs.
Fellows will meet weekly with the residency director and regularly with a research supervisor and/or rotation supervisor. Fellows also have at least 5 hours of structured educational activities per week.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
