Shepherd Center, located in Atlanta, Georgia, is a private, not-for-profit hospital specializing in medical treatment, research and rehabilitation for people with spinal cord injury, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, spine and chronic pain, and other neuromuscular conditions.  Founded in 1975, Shepherd Center is ranked by U.S. News & World Report among the top 10 rehabilitation hospitals in the nation.

 

In its more than four decades, Shepherd Center has grown from a six-bed rehabilitation unit to a world-renowned, 152-bed hospital that treats more than 900 inpatients, 575 day program patients and more than 7,100 outpatients each year. Patients travel from across the nation -- and even the globe -- to Shepherd Center for its innovative brand of neurorehabilitation.

 

Qualifications:

•           PhD or PsyD from an APA-approved program in Clinical Psychology AND two-year postdoctoral fellowship/residency in Clinical Neuropsychology required

•           Eligibility for board certification in Clinical Neuropsychology

•           Licensed Psychologist in state of Georgia or eligible for licensure in state of Georgia

 

The neuropsychologist will primarily be responsible for maintaining an inpatient assessment/treatment service in our Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) neurorehabilitation program, which includes a Disorder of Consciousness Program for patients who are semi-comatose or minimally conscious.  The neuropsychologist will have opportunities to work with patients with a wide variety of neurological conditions (e.g., TBI, CVA, brain tumor, hydrocephalus, anoxic brain injury, encephalopathy).  The neuropsychologist will also maintain an outpatient practice consisting of neuropsychological evaluations in the Shepherd Center outpatient neuropsychology clinic.  The department also has an APPCN Fellowship (typically 2 fellows), and the neuropsychologist at times might be responsible for supervising and mentoring postdoctoral fellows, as well as practicum students from local Universities.   Research opportunities are available as desired. 

 

Shepherd Center is a high-performing organization that offers rewarding careers, as well as competitive compensation and benefits, a diverse workplace culture, enlightened leadership and professional growth opportunities.
