What does a Clinical Neuropsychologist do?

A clinical neuropsychologist is a professional trained in psychological assessment and intervention that enables assessment, diagnosis, and rehabilitation of brain disorders. They work alongside medical teams, particularly within neurology and neurosurgery, but may also support local family doctors and rehabilitation therapists. Clinical Neuropsychologists must undergo extensive post-graduate training following an undergraduate degree in Psychology and must additionally undergo at least 2 years of supervised clinical practice prior to being able to practice independently. They are also required to undertake continuous professional development to ensure they remain up-to-date in the field.
