About Clinical Neuropsychology

Training in Clinical Neuropsychology (CN) at the University of Windsor is a concentration within the Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program. Our track has a life-span developmental orientation and follows the scientist-practitioner model. In the CN track, research and clinical training go hand-in-hand. We strive to find a good fit between student and research supervisor from the beginning of training in order to promote success and fulfillment in this important aspect of graduate training Our required courses meet the guidelines set forth by the Houston Conference on Specialty Education and Training in Clinical Neuropsychology, as well as the meeting requirements for professional registration in Canada and licensure in much of the United States. As a result of their clinical skills and research strengths, our students often go to one of their top choices for internship placement. With recognized expertise in clinical neuropsychology, our graduates are much sought-after by medical centres, teaching hospitals, and universities. 

Clinical Neuropsychology is a track within the Clinical Psychology graduate program at the University of Windsor. Our track takes a life-span approach (preschool through older adult) and ascribes to the scientist-practitioner model. We also offer advanced courses in neurodevelopmental disabilities, rehabilitation, and neuropsychology of aging. 

Our graduate program involves three major components: research, coursework, and clinical training. Students begin their research program in their first year. Across their time in the program, students are engaged in designing studies, collecting data,  knowledge translation/dissemination, and submitting grant and scholarship applications. More information about research areas in Clinical Neuropsychology can be found on individual faculty websites.

The majority of required courses are completed in the first three years of the program. Students take a few additional courses in specialty areas in subsequent years while completing research and practicum requirements.

Our program offers excellent clinical training opportunities. Students spend two years in our on-campus neuropsychology clinic after two semesters of coursework. Our students also complete practica in other on-campus clinical settings, school settings, hospital-based neuropsychological clinics, private practices, and rehabilitation centres. After students have successfully proposed their dissertation, they are eligible to apply for internship.
