- Have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree in clinical or counseling psychology, including internship and dissertation.

Our selection committee includes Geisinger’s neuropsychology faculty members. Current residents participate in the interview process, but only to answer questions or describe their experiences at Geisinger. They won’t evaluate you.
The most successful candidates generally have strong academic and clinical backgrounds in clinical neuropsychology, and preference is given to applicants who’ve completed doctoral and internship training in line with the Houston Conference Guidelines in Clinical Neuropsychology.
Geisinger’s Adult Clinical Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Residency/Fellowship program doesn’t participate in the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology match. Following applicant interviews, the selection committee ranks our applicants. Offers are extended as soon as the committee reaches a consensus — no later than the end of January.
