Banner Children’s Specialists seeks an experienced and enthusiastic Pediatric Neuropsychologist for a full-time position opening in our Pediatric Neuropsychology department. This opening offers the opportunity to develop and grow a new clinic location within our expanding multidisciplinary Pediatric Neurosciences program while being supported by and being an integral part of our current team of Pediatric Neuropsychologists. The patient population consists of individuals (infants to 18 years of age) presenting with medical complexities, with referrals to the Pediatric Neuropsychology department primarily coming from Neurology, Neurosurgery, Hematology/Oncology, Cardiology, Genetics, and Trauma. As our new Pediatric Neuropsychology clinic location expands, additional opportunities may include supervision of advanced practicum students, participation in research, and brief inpatient bedside evaluations, depending upon the provider’s interests. 


Position Requirements:

-         Ph.D. or Psy.D. in Psychology from an APA or CPA accredited program;

-         Successful completion of an APA, APPIC, or CPA accredited internship training;

-         Successful completion of an APA, APPIC, or CPA accredited postdoctoral training/fellowship in pediatric or lifespan neuropsychology in accordance with Houston Conference guidelines;

Primary Responsibilities:

-         Provide neuropsychological and neurodevelopmental evaluations in the outpatient setting to children (ages 0 to 18) with a variety of medical complexities.

-         Candidates should be aware that they will not be provided with a psychometrician, initially, and will be responsible for test administration, scoring, and interpretation. As this clinic grows and patient volumes increase, hiring of a psychometrician will be considered.

-         Rotation between the Glendale clinic location and the main clinic location in Mesa, Arizona may be considered, depending upon candidate preference.


Annual salary and benefits are competitive, including an allowance for membership dues, continuing medical education, and travel for continuing education.
