Alpert Medical School of Brown University

The Clinical Psychology Postdoctoral Fellowship Training Consortium in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior (DPHB) at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University has three Divisions. Elizabeth McQuaid, PhD, ABPP provides oversight over all postdoctoral training within the Consortium.

1) The APA-accredited Clinical Psychology Program (CPP) provides general training in clinical psychology (Traditional Practice Program) within a hospital-based setting. This program offers emphasis tracks in Adult, Child, and Health Psychology/Behavioral Medicine. Postdoctoral fellows who have completed the one-year APA-accredited program may elect to stay a second year for additional clinical/research training. (Elizabeth McQuaid, PhD, ABPP, is Director of this program)

2) The Clinical Neuropsychology Specialty Program (CNSP) provides training in clinical neuropsychology within a hospital-based setting that is consistent with Houston Conference Guidelines. The CNSP was formerly the Neuropsychology Track within the CPP. The CNSP is currently pursuing specialty accreditation from APA. Until specialty accreditation is received, current and incoming CNSP fellows have the same accreditation status as CPP fellows. CNSP postdoctoral fellows complete one year of accredited training in the CPP (above) as part of the traditional practice program in the emphasis area of neuropsychology, then an additional year of training that is not part of the accredited program. When specialty accreditation is received, both CNSP fellowship years will be accredited. (Stephen Correia, PhD, ABPP-CN, is Director of the CNSP and Jennifer Davis, PhD, ABPP-CN, is Associate Director)

3) The postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program (RFP) provides postdoctoral research training for individuals from various disciplines related to behavioral science. These research-focused fellowships are typically hospital-based and are funded by individual faculty research grants or NIH T32/F32 Training Grants. This program offers emphasis tracks in Adult, Child, Health Psychology/Behavioral Medicine, and Neuropsychology. (Elizabeth McQuaid, PhD, ABPP, is Director of this program and Geoffrey Tremont, PhD, ABPP-CN, is Associate Director)
