The position requires Ph.D. or Psy. D. degree from an APA-accredited program and eligibility for licensure in Colorado is required. The candidate should demonstrate training and experience to eventually be eligible to pursue board certification in rehabilitation psychology via ABPP and/or in neuropsychology by ABPP or ABN.
The successful candidate is expected to participate in and/or supervise neuropsychological assessments (we have a testing technician on staff), and to guide the counseling team in their provision of individual/group psychotherapy to patients and families dealing with psychological, medical, disability, and rehabilitation issues. The primary patient populations served include TBI, MS, CVA and other cerebrovascular disorders, dementia, epilepsy, spinal cord injury and brain tumors. The age of our patients ranges from late adolescence to the elderly, although there are opportunities for pediatrics if the candidate is qualified.
The focus of our program is on Neurorehabilitation, and a primary interest and passion of the candidate must be to integrate the results of neuropsychological testing into the rehabilitation process.

We are looking for a person who is outgoing, confident, hard-working, team minded, flexible and detail-oriented. There will be eventual expectations to develop and monitor interdisciplinary treatment plans that are neuropsychologically oriented. This position could develop into an increased role in program development/management.
