Postdoc Psychologist Fellow Marietta, GA
- Wellstar Health System
- Location: Marietta, GA
- Job Number: 7086931
- Posting Date: Oct 11, 2021
- Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
Job DescriptionPosition: The Wellstar Medical Group’s neuropsychology practice is pleased to initiate recruiting for a 2-year residency in clinical neuropsychology. Our program is comprised of 6 clinical neuropsychologists (3 adult, 1 pediatric, and 2 in the neurorehabilitation setting), including 3 ABPP-CN certified providers. We adhere to Houston Conference training guidelines. We are an APPCN member and participate in the Match (http://www.natmatch.com/appcnmat/). Our goal is to produce highly competent independently practicing neuropsychologists prepared to pursue ABPP certification.
We offer diverse assessment and intervention experiences (e.g., cognitive rehabilitation) across the lifespan, depending on interest and prior experience, though adult outpatient populations will be an emphasis given provider composition and specialization. Neurodegenerative processes (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinsonian conditions, Frontal Temporal Lobe dementias) will be a focus. You will also have an opportunity to work on the Kennestone Hospital Campus, within inpatient and outpatient neurorehabilitation settings. The primary population is stroke but also includes brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, and Parkinson’s disease among others. Working within multidisciplinary teams, you will provide bedside assessments, interventions, and education (team, patient, and caregiver). Additional potential experiences include Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) evaluations, bariatric surgery evaluations, and hospital consults, conducted for a variety of reasons including dementia vs delirium.
Didactic and teaching opportunities are offered through neuropsychology case conferences, a neuroimaging seminar, professional development, diversity seminar, and grand rounds throughout the hospital system. Clinically oriented research or program development is expected (approximately 10% of time allotment).
Setting: Wellstar is a not-for-profit health system that was ranked one of Fortune 100 Great Places to Work in 2021. It is one of the largest and most integrated healthcare systems in Georgia, comprising of 11 hospitals, 5 integrated health parks, and outpatient office suites with more than 300 locations throughout the greater-Atlanta area. Our mission is to enhance the health and well-being of every person we serve while delivering world-class healthcare. Our quickly expanding neuropsychology group presently practices on the Kennestone Hospital Campus, in Marietta, GA, and an outpatient office, in East Cobb, a suburb 15 minutes away from Kennestone Hospital and just north of Atlanta, Georgia, a cultural epicenter. Quality of life is excellent, offering great public schools, and a large variety of retail, restaurants, wineries, breweries, art galleries, outdoor activities, amphitheaters, and sporting venues. We are also only a short drive to the north Georgia mountains and the beautiful beaches on the eastern shoreline.
Salary & Benefits: This is a full-time position with a 2-year commitment. Salary and benefits are competitive with industry standards and include health insurance, a 403(b), $5000 for CE and travel, 5 education days, readily available and free parking across training sites, and other benefits that have made Wellstar a Great Place to Work. CE funds can be used for licensure fees since Georgia psychology licensure is a requirement for program completion. It can also be used for medical texts.
