Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) – Pediatric Neuropsychology

The Pediatric Neuropsychology practicum at MCW provides students with experience in pediatric neuropsychological assessment. Practicum experiences include administering and scoring a wide range of neuropsychological measures, participating in case conceptualization, and attending case conferences/didactics with faculty and post-doctoral fellows (when available). Students gain experience working with children across the lifespan (from age 2 to 17) and see children with a wide variety of medical/neurodevelopmental concerns (e.g. epilepsy, brain tumor, ASD, genetic disorders, etc.). Additionally, the supervisors, including the technicians, post-doctoral fellows, and pediatric neuropsychologists, are available for hands-on assistance in test administration and case conceptualization. While the environment is fast-paced and full of rich opportunities, it is designed to be supportive of practicum students.
