The Center for Brain/Mind Medicine
Training & Education
The CBMM offers training and education programs in behavioral neurology, neuropsychiatry, and neuropsychology for students and professionals.
The Mass General Brigham (MGB) Fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology (formerly known as the Harvard Partners Consortium in Clinical Neuropsychology) seeks candidates for a 2-year fellowship in neuropsychology to begin on September 1, 2024. The joint BWH/MGH fellowship is a program of Harvard Medical School.
- Two slots are available in the Clinical Neuropsychology Track
- One slot is available in the more research focused, Aging and Alzheimer’s Neuropsychology Track
Both tracks are designed to provide excellent clinical training, along with experiences and didactics which conform to Houston Conference/Division 40 training requirements so that fellows will be successful in obtaining board-certification (ABPP) in clinical neuropsychology. Didactic opportunities abound at both settings. The training experience is enriched by a highly collaborative teaching environment in which the fellow will work closely with neuropsychologists, behavioral neurologists, psychiatrists, and others with a special interest in brain and behavior. There are opportunities for teaching and to supervise graduate practicum students and interns.
A competitive stipend ($69,300 Years 1 & 2) plus excellent benefits are offered. An academic appointment will be made as a Clinical Fellow at Harvard Medical School.
Applicants should be graduates of APA/CPA accredited programs in clinical psychology or neuropsychology and should have completed an APA/CPA‐approved predoctoral internship. Completion of the doctoral degree is required before the fellowship start date.
We are committed to increasing inclusivity in neuropsychology training and strongly encourage candidates from underrepresented racial, ethnic, and gender identity groups to apply.
Applications Due: December 1, 2023
Only electronic applications will be accepted.
Additional information about each track and instructions for applying below:
Clinical Neuropsychology Track
Clinical experience will consist of adult outpatient neurological cases including dementia, epilepsy, brain tumor/oncology, developmental syndromes, neurobehavioral disorders, MS, and other degenerative conditions. Exposure to pediatrics may be available at MGH based on individual background and interest, but clinical training will be primarily adult-focused at both sites for this cycle. Training in cognitive rehabilitation is offered as an elective, primarily during the second-year rotation at BWH.
A required portion of the fellowship will be research activity through a proposed project or via participation with faculty in ongoing research projects. There is 20% of protected research time for these activities.
Applying to the Clinical Neuropsychology Track
Interested applicants should complete the online form and upload all required documents in the MGB Neuropsychology Fellowship Application Portal including:
- Letter of intent (including discussion of area of research interest)
- 2 sample reports
- Graduate transcript (unofficial is acceptable; an official copy may be requested)
- 3 letters of recommendation should be uploaded directly by references via this link.

Aging and Alzheimer’s Neuropsychology Track
This fellowship track is a two-year program of full-time education and training that takes place across two sites: the Division of Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and the Harvard Aging Brain Study (HABS) at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) at Charlestown Navy Yard. The program schedule is divided into clinical activities at BWH, clinical trial activities at BWH, and clinical research in aging and Alzheimer’s disease at MGH HABS for the duration of the fellowship.
During the first year of the program, fellows will engage in clinical training and neuropsychology didactics, as well as participating in assessment in clinical trials and research projects at MGH HABS. The second year, fellows will continue with clinical training at BWH and focus more time at MGH HABS on research related activities.
Applying to the Aging and Alzheimer’s Neuropsychology Track
Interested applicants should send application materials to Dr. Rebecca Amariglio here
including the following:
- Letter of intent, including a personal statement describing clinical and research experiences, fellowship expectations, and career goals
- Reprints or pre-prints of published manuscripts if available
- Transcript from graduate school(s) (photocopy acceptable)
- Verification that doctoral training is completed or will have been completed before commencing postdoctoral training.
In addition, applicants should arrange for three letters of recommendation (at least one from a research supervisor/mentor) to be sent to this link.
