    Full-time office space, testing materials available for sharing, and referrals might make this a good opportunity for an early-career neuropsychologist starting a private practice. The associate will work part-time for Dr. O’Grady but is encouraged to see his or her own patients in the remaining time.

    • ·       Assist in clinical interview of non-English-speaking examinees through interpretation and direct interview (if candidate has language skill).
    • ·       Other administrative duties as requested.

    • Population served: The population is demographically and diagnostically diverse, representing the full range of conditions typically seen in an outpatient neuropsychology practice.

    • ·       Pediatric clinical evaluations include patients with brain tumors, leukemia and other forms of cancer, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, genetic disorders, complex learning disabilities, and other neurodevelopmental conditions.
    • ·       Adult clinical evaluations include patients with TBI, mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, primary progressive aphasia, stroke, epilepsy, brain tumors, systemic medical conditions, and various psychiatric disorders.
