Doctoral Worksheet for Education & Training in Clinical Neuropsychology
This worksheet was developed to help doctoral students prepare for success throughout their training (i.e., doctoral, internship, and postdoctoral fellowship levels) and as they enter independent practice as early career neuropsychologists. It is intended to be used a training tool, to help students 1) develop training and career goals, 2) develop a clear training plan by which their goals can be realized, and 3) identify areas of strength and gaps in training that can be addressed. We strongly recommend that the worksheet be completed collaboratively by students and their mentor, and that it be revisited at least annually.

Goals of the EAC
To promote the recognition of Clinical Neuropsychology as a specialty within APA with defined education and training requirements.
To support and promote the implementation of the Houston Conference recommendations on Specialty Education and Training in Clinical Neuropsychology.
To facilitate training in clinical neuropsychology at all levels including doctoral, internship, post-doctoral, early career and continuing professional education and serves as a forum for communication and coordination among the various training organizations in clinical neuropsychology.
To maintain the Division 40 list of Training Programs that is updated annually to disseminate information about doctoral, internship and post-doctoral training programs in clinical neuropsychology.
To serve an advisory role to ANST (Association of Neuropsychology Students in Training) and help sponsor education/training information sessions at APA and INS .
To serve an advisory role to Division 40’s representative to the APA Committee on Early Career Psychologists to facilitate efforts of clinical neuropsychologists at the early stages of professional development.
