Residency

2-Year Residency Position in Clinical Neuropsychology

A-Z Neuropsychology hosts a 2-year residency position in Clinical Neuropsychology, through the Arizona Psychology Training Consortium (https://www.azptc.org/). The Consortium is APPIC (not APA) accredited. Licensure in Psychology is not required in the first year of the residency, though applicants are encouraged to apply for temporary or permanent licensure as desired during that time. The annual stipend offered to residents is $45,000, which is paid biweekly through a payroll system (taxes withheld). Benefits include paid vacation time (5 days per year, approved in advance), paid sick days (10 per year, as needed), and paid holidays (and our holiday schedule is more generous than most!). Participation in an employee-sponsored retirement program is also offered after the resident successfully completes their first year of training. Incoming residents will have their own office, and all required materials (testing materials, laptop, etc.) will be provided for their use. 


The minimum requirements to apply are as follows:

  • A doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology (including completion of the internship year) 
  • History of neuropsychology training in some form (generally a combination of coursework and supervised clinical activity)
  • Proof of eligibility to work in the United States

    Desired pursuit of board certification is a plus, but not formally required! 


    Consortium Required Application Materials Include:

    • A cover letter summarizing your training interests and listing A-Z Neuropsychology, LLC as the specific training site of interest 
    • A curriculum vitae (CV)
    • Documentation that all of your doctoral requirements (including internship and dissertation) will be complete prior to the start of residency; this can take the form of (a) a letter from the director of clinical training or the dissertation chair of your graduate program or (b) an official transcript verifying degree completion
    • Official transcripts from all doctoral studies
    • Three letters of recommendation, sent directly/securely 


    Site-Specific Required Application Materials Include:

    • 3 de-identified neuropsychological evaluation reports (original writing samples)


    Interested applicants should send an email expressing interest and/or containing the above listed application materials to Dr. Burger (sburger@a-zneuropsychology.com). Any questions regarding the residency program can similarly be directed to Dr. Burger.  


    IMPORTANT NOTE: A-Z’s next residency opening is anticipated for the 2024 application cycle (with the selected resident starting in the 2024-2025 academic year). Applications are accepted on a revolving basis, but priority consideration is given to applicants who submit all required application materials by 12/31/2023. For priority applicants, interviews (whether in person or virtually, by applicant preference) will take place during the first two weeks of January if not before, and we anticipate a formal offer/regret date of 1/31/2024.
