Brigham and Women's Hospital

 

 

Fellowship Director: Mary-Ellen Meadows, PhD, ABPP

 

 BWH is a 779-bed tertiary care medical center and a major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, located in the heart of Boston's Longwood Medical Area. The Longwood Medical Area, a world-renowned center for clinical care, research, and medical education, is home to Harvard Medical School, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Children's Hospital, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Joslin Diabetes Clinic, Harvard Institute of Medicine, and hundreds of research laboratories. At Brigham and Women's Hospital, the Fellow will train in the Division of Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology,  an interdisciplinary group of Neuropsychologists, Behavioral Neurologists, Neuropsychiatrists, Social Workers, and Occupational Therapists.

Training will include the clinical evaluation and treatment of adults with neurobehavioral disorders including dementia (probable Alzheimer's disease, degenerative dementias, vascular dementia), epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, brain tumor, toxic/metabolic disorders, stroke syndromes, traumatic brain injury, developmental syndromes, ADHD, and learning disability. Specialized experience including WADA testing and intraoperative cortical mapping is available through the epilepsy surgery program. The majority of clinical experience will be gained with outpatients. The general expectation is that the Fellow will complete three evaluations per week.
 

Under the supervision of senior neuropsychology staff, the Fellow will conduct initial interviews; administer, score, and interpret the results of neuropsychological testing; and construct comprehensive case reports which will be co-signed by the supervising senior staff member. The Fellow will receive no less than 2 hours of supervision per week. Issues emphasized in supervision include clinical diagnosis, translation of testing results to patients, caregivers, and referral sources; and the recognition of and appropriate response to cultural differences and sensitivities.

 

The Fellow will participate in ongoing clinical research or develop a project which is do-able within the training time frame. There are numerous ongoing research projects in the areas of memory, aging, and neuropsychological aspects of disease.
