Evaluation and Grievance
Residents are formally evaluated 4 times annually (in the middle and end of each 6-month experience).
These evaluations are centered around achieving APPCN exit criteria of:
- Advanced skill in the neuropsychological evaluation, treatment, and consultation to patients and professionals sufficient to practice on an independent basis.
- Advanced understanding of brain-behavior relationships.
- Scholarly activity, as reflected by submission of a study or literature review for publication or presentation or submission of a grant proposal or outcome assessment.
- Eligibility for state or provincial licensure or certification for the independent practice of psychology.
- Eligibility for board certification in clinical neuropsychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology.
- The resident is formally evaluated to be a competent practitioner in the areas designated in the Houston Conference Policy Statement. These areas include both pertinent knowledge and requisite skills.
We follow UT Health San Antonio’s GME Office policies for due process and grievances.
Concerns with the fellow may arise from not meeting rotation requirements set at the beginning of the rotation or behaviors that are in violation of the APA Code of Ethics or the UT Health San Antonio Code of Ethics or Standards of Conduct. If documented concerns are not addressed, a formal remediation plan will be put in place to allow for structured improvement in trainee performance.
If the trainee has concerns with training environment, there are several avenues to report concerns, including:
- The training director
- A non-neuropsychology faculty consultant, Alicia Parker, MD
- A non-department ombudsperson
- A non-institutional neuropsychologist consultant, Karin J.M. McCoy
