Clinical Neuropsychology

Clinical neuropsychology is a recognized specialty of clinical psychology that involves the science and practice of brain-behavior relationships across the lifespan.

The University of Houston (UH) has a proud and storied history of specialty training in clinical neuropsychology that dates back to the 1970s. In its present form, the clinical psychology Ph.D. program at UH offers a clinical neuropsychology training experience that follows the guidelines of the Houston Conference on Specialty Education and Education and Training in Clinical Neuropsychology and meets the American Psychological Association’s definition of a “major area of study."

Our mission is to train the next generation of academic clinical neuropsychologists who will work in multidisciplinary research and clinical teams to advance our understanding of brain-behavior relationships and enhance the quality of life of individuals and families affected by disorders of the central nervous system.
