Application Procedures and Selection Criteria
Residents are selected on the basis of their prior experience, demonstrated knowledge and aptitude for rehabilitation psychology and neuropsychology, and goodness of fit between applicant interests and the training we offer.
We are an equal opportunity employer and seek to encourage diversity within the field; those applicants who are members of populations that are under-represented are encouraged to identify themselves as such. Trainees are covered by Detroit Medical Center policies. Policy 1 HR 113 states: "The DMC complies with all laws which apply to employment practices and is an equal opportunity employer. All provisions of this policy should be interpreted consistent with all relevant laws and regulations. Within the provisions of the law, in hiring and internal job movement, the criteria of education, experience, training, and ability are applied without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, age, gender, height, weight, marital status, sexual orientation, disability or status as a Vietnam-era or special disabled veteran. Employees of the DMC are prohibited from engaging in any employment practices that are prohibited by law and are contrary to the intent of this policy."
We require that residents have a Ph.D. or Psy.D from an APA or CPA accredited program in clinical or counseling psychology, have completed an APA or CPA approved internship, and have training and experience in neuropsychology.
To apply, please send a statement of interest, curriculum vitae, official transcripts, copies of 2 neuropsychological reports, and three letters of recommendation (e-mailed letters of recommendation are preferred) to:
