Bancroft NeuroRehab’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in Neuropsychology Receives Prestigious Recognition
(Cherry Hill, N.J.) – Bancroft NeuroRehab, a regional leader in therapies and residential care for those who have experienced brain injury, stroke and other neurological conditions, has been accepted as a member of the prestigious Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN) for its postdoctoral fellowship.
APPCN is a professional organization whose members provide postdoctoral training in Clinical Neuropsychology. APPCN verifies that the postdoctoral training provided by member programs adheres to the requirements by the Houston Conference/INS-Division 40 requirements.
Throughout the region there are only seven APPCN fellowships including three in New York, one in Pennsylvania and, including Bancroft’s accreditation, three in New Jersey. There are none in Delaware.
“This is the highest level of credentialing a neuropsychology fellowship can achieve,” states Karen Lindgren, Bancroft Chief Clinical Officer. “This showcases the clinical excellence we have at Bancroft and allows us to greatly contribute to the pipeline of qualified neuropsychologists in the region. It is an incredible accomplishment for our organization.”
The postdoctoral fellowship is a two-year, full-time position that meets requirements for board certification in neuropsychology and will offer training in neuropsychological assessment of adults and older adults who are living with conditions such as brain injury and dementia. The program offers a unique experience in providing psychotherapy treatment for individuals with chronic severe acquired brain injuries and allows the participant to work as part of the transdisciplinary treatment team at Bancroft NeuroRehab, which includes nurses, rehabilitation therapy specialists, and case managers.
The postdoctoral fellows will be supervised by two board certified neuropsychologists, the highest level of designation a neuropsychologist can achieve. They will develop research projects to present at national or international conferences and have opportunities to conduct research regarding chronic severe brain injury within Bancroft’s residential program. The postdoctoral fellows will also have opportunities to attend seminars within Bancroft and with partnering institutions, including University of Pennsylvania’s Memory Center and the psychology departments of the University of Temple and the Philadelphia VA.
Dr. Lindgren is available for comment and interviews. Bancroft NeuroRehab is a division of Bancroft, a regional nonprofit organization that provides treatment for adults and children living with autism and developmental disabilities.
