Clinical Neuropsychologist, Department of Neurology or Strong Epilepsy Center and Regional Administrator?

Summary:

The University of Rochester Medical Center is looking for a highly motivated individual to join our team as a Psychometrist within the Department of Neurology, Strong Epilepsy Center. The Psychometrist will work under the direction/supervision of a Board­ Certified Neuropsychologist. The Psychometrist will work with patients that span a very broad age range (i.e., 4 years old through the entire lifespan) who have epilepsy. Many patients will have neuropsychological evaluations as part of pre-surgical evaluations or to help plan for school and/or work. While the patient population primarily will be those with epilepsy, there may be opportunities periodically to see patients with other medical/neurologic conditions.

While the Psychometrist will work under the license of a Neuropsychologist in an outpatient medical setting, the position requires critical thinking skills, the ability to function independently as necessary, a high level of professionalism, strong interpersonal skills, and clinical training/background in psychological assessment (neuropsychology experience preferred). This is a time-as-reported position not to exceed 17 hours per week. A majority of the work will be done on Mondays, with completion of work (e.g., scoring tests and data entry) on Tuesdays as necessary.

Primary responsibilities include:

  • Direct patient contact involving administration of psychological and neuropsychological measures following clinical protocols.

  • Independently operate and maintain testing equipment, maintain clinical files until test administration and scoring are complete, track testing supplies, and notify supervisor when new supplies need to be ordered.

  • We are specifically looking for candidates who are highly organized, able to effectively multitask, and effectively interact with diverse patients and staff.

  • Recording and making specific behavioral observations of patient's behavior during testing.

  • Standardized administration of neuropsychological tests, patient questionnaires, and questionnaires completed by those accompanying the patient (when applicable).

  • Scoring the administered measures and documenting scores for review by the Neuropsychologist

  • Assistance with record review.

  • Temporarily maintain clinical records during the testing and scoring process.

  • Maintain active communication with the Neuropsychologist.

Minimum Requirements:

Bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university in psychology or related field plus 2 years relevant experience. Equivalent combination of education and experience.

Preferred Qualifications:

Master's degree from a regionally accredited college or university preferred. At least one year of relevant experience preferred. Prior neuropsychological assessment experience preferred.
