Clinical Neuropsychology Residency

The Battle Creek VA Medical Center (BCVAMC) Clinical Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Residency Program recruits applicants on odd-year cycles (2019-2021; 2021-2023; 2023-2025). We participate in the APPCN Neuropsychology Match and complete interviews at INS or via phone/video conferencing.
The Clinical Neuropsychology Residency is Accredited on Contingency by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association. This means as a new program, we do not yet have outcome data for our graduates and are expected to provide it by 2022 for full accreditation.
