Additional Requirements and Opportunities

We ask that trainees have applied for licensure in the State of Texas and be a provisionally licensed psychologist by the end of their first year. This requires passing the EPPP and a take-home jurisprudence exam. Learn more

To gain experience as an independent professional, a trainee may choose to undertake an administrative project which addresses an unmet (or inefficiently met) need that the trainee identifies in the program or department.

Several of our core and associated faculty are involved with professional organizations within neuropsychology and related specialties. If interested, a trainee is encouraged to pursue service involvement with mentorship to improve effectiveness of that involvement.

Individual Experience Opportunities

As suggested in the experiences noted above, a trainee may elect greater depth in each of the clinical and research opportunities. Personal interests will be elicited every year as a part of the training. The trainee will collaboratively develop a training plan with the UTHSA Neuropsychology supervisors and includes training goals and clinical rotation schedules for each of the 4, 6-month rotations. This is also reviewed at the end of the first year.

Ethics and Diversity

We offer multiple opportunities to address ethics and diversity in our program. It is a core belief of our faculty that these are not fringe topics, but instead are central to the field.

We have made steps to include the AACN Relevance 2050 presentation guidelines that integrate consideration of diversity across topics.

We also have relevant discussion of ethics throughout supervision and have dedicated didactics for these topics.
