ANST Interest Group Highlight:

Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine

Why is it important for your institution/graduate program to have an ANST interest group:

To support the students who are interested in neuropsychology by creating a sense of community among each other and most importantly provide a space for us to continue to grow and learn more about the neuropsychology field.

Past interest group initiatives/programming:
We do a community service event every trimester. In the past we have written letters to individuals with Alzheimer’s who are in a memory care facility, we hosted a NEURObingo event to raise money for the BIAA, and raised money for the Congenital Heart Walk at the Philadelphia Zoo. Additionally, we invite neuropsychologists from the community to do case presentations and other lectures such as board certification for our groups. We also do student case presentations and article discussions.

Planned future interest group initiatives/programming in the upcoming year:
We plan to do an article discussion on the neurological effects of COVID19 & have more case presentations and lectures from students and neuropsychologists.

General research and clinical interests of group members:
forensic neuropsychology, dementia, pediatrics, trauma
