The Chesapeake Postdoctoral
Offering two openings for a full-time, two-year postdoctoral residency in lifespan neuropsychology for the 2021-2023 training cycle.
The Chesapeake Center is a large, multidisciplinary private clinic in Bethesda Maryland, a suburb close to Washington D.C. that provides neuropsychological, psychoeducational and psychological testing, psychotherapeutic support, educational tutoring, executive functioning coaching and psychiatric services to individuals across the lifespan with attention, learning, neurodevelopmental and behavioral issues and the broad range of psychiatric conditions that so often accompany these disorders. We are known for our effective, brain-based, solution-focused treatment approach and we provide a range of services to people of all ages, including: individual, family and couples therapy, trainings and workshops, career counseling, ADHD coaching/tutoring and group psychotherapy. Our mission is to provide education and training that fosters professional competencies required for state licensure, specialization in clinical neuropsychology, and the fellow’s eligibility to seek ABPP/ABCN board certification. Our program follows the guidelines outlined in the Houston Conference on Specialty Education and Training and conforms to program requirements for membership in the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN).
As a private clinic that cannot provide the range of clinical experience available in a large institutional setting, and to ensure our postdoctoral fellows are afforded opportunities to work with individuals with a wider range of central nervous system conditions than typically seen at our clinic, we have developed educational experiences for our fellows at nearby clinical neuropsychology training sites. Two other centers have agreed to join us to form The Chesapeake Postdoctoral Neuropsychological Training Consortium. The group is organized and overseen by The Chesapeake Center. The mission of our consortium is to provide top-quality, intensive and comprehensive adult and pediatric clinical neuropsychological training to postdoctoral fellows.
