Special to HNN Provided by Marshall University

Marshall Health and the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine have established a new postdoctoral fellowship program that offers advanced training opportunities in adult clinical neuropsychology.

The two-year program focuses on a field of psychology dedicated to the advanced understanding of brain-behavior relationships. Fellows work closely with the experienced neuropsychologists at Marshall Health to acquire advanced skills in neuropsychological assessment, treatment and consultation for patients experiencing various neurodegenerative illnesses, cerebrovascular disorders, movement disorders, epilepsy, traumatic brain injuries and other chronic medical conditions.

“Although residency and fellowship are not required to practice neuropsychology, I speak from experience when I say that postdoctoral training is an enriching experience that broadens your skills as a practitioner,” said Michelle C. Hudson, Psy.D., ABPP, an associate professor at the School of Medicine who serves as director of the program. “The program we have built at Marshall Health offers diverse experiences through collaborations across neurology, geriatric medicine and neurosurgery that will better equip neuropsychologists to care for older adults.”
