Neuropsychology Training Program

The UCSF Neuropsychology Training Program in the Department of Neurology provides pre-doctoral and postdoctoral training in neuropsychology. Training occurs through the UCSF Memory and Aging Center (MAC), a multidisciplinary group dedicated to improving the diagnosis and treatment of cognitive and behavioral disorders resulting from neurological disease, in particular, neurodegenerative disorders. In addition to a large clinical service, we have research programs that focus on healthy aging, mild cognitive impairment, frontotemporal lobar disorders and Alzheimer’s disease. As part of the UCSF Department of Neurology, which has over 100 faculty members, the MAC maintains strong collaborative relationships with other clinical programs and with basic scientists in areas ranging from molecular biology to cognitive neuroscience at UCSF and other Bay Area institutions. The Neuropsychology Training Program shares resources with the Behavioral Neurology Training Program, a certified program designed to prepare physicians for research careers in behavioral neurology.
