St. Kitts is located in the Leeward Islands at the northern end of the Lesser Antilles, approximately 220 miles southeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Together with her sister island, Nevis, they constitute the Federation of St. Christopher and Nevis, an English-speaking member of the British Commonwealth of Nations. The name St. Kitts is short for St. Christopher, the name reputedly given by Christopher Columbus when he first passed through the Caribbean in the 1490s. A volcanic island, St. Kitts is lined by stunning windswept beaches: the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Caribbean to the west. Cooled by trade winds, St. Kitts enjoys an average temperature of just under 80ºF. Due to its abundant forests, fresh water, and fertile, easily worked soil, St. Kitts attracted European settlers and, in 1623, became Britain’s first colony in the West Indies. The culture of St. Kitts combines elements from Africa, Europe and native America. St. Kitts and its sister island, Nevis, gained independence from Britain in 1983, however, British influence is still strongly evidenced in many local customs, including driving on the left and enthusiasm for cricket. The 50-acre RUSVM campus overlooking the Caribbean is a student-focused environment with all the teaching, learning, and laboratory facilities needed for efficient learning. One of the most exciting parts of life at RUSVM is the campus community; currently there are approximately 850 enrolled students and 100 faculty. Students, faculty and staff are drawn from an amazingly diverse group of people. The variety of cultures, personalities, languages and lifestyles that one encounters both on campus and in the St. Kitts community make life at RUSVM and on the island both uniquely rewarding and challenging.

University Of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital, Minneapolis, MN, USA - 1 Fellowship in Pediatric Neuropsychology

The Pediatric Neuropsychology unit of the Division of Behavioral Neuroscience provides a diagnostic service for children with complex learning and behavioral disorders, both neurological and neurodevelopmental in etiology. Children are referred by schools, clinics, practitioners in the community, and medical staff at this hospital. This unit serves the community, state, five-state area, and for specific disease entities, the entire country. The clinical orientation of the faculty is developmental. Our approach to neuropsychology is to integrate knowledge from neuropsychological testing with data from neurological, imaging, neurophysiological, and laboratory studies to quantity functional deficits in the context of the central nervous system using a developmental framework.

Clinical Service: Neuropsychological diagnostic services are provided for children with neurodevelopmental disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, learning disabilities, developmental aphasia, autism, and intellectual disability, and for neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Tourette Syndrome and other movement disorders, head trauma, sequelae of infectious diseases such as meningitis and encephalitis, neurotoxic conditions, congenital disorders such as agenesis of the corpus callosum and hydrocephalus, degenerative, metabolic, and genetic disorders, CNS effects of cancer and its treatment, and migraine and tension headaches. Opportunities exist for fellows to participate in specialty clinics, including: craniofacial clinic, neonatal follow-up clinic, oncology long-term follow-up clinic, and selected others. Psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety, and conduct disturbances especially in children with possible attentional and learning difficulties, and somatoform disorders are also commonly seen. For a diagnostic evaluation, cases are scheduled for two half day visits in the Pediatric Neuropsychology clinic. A staffing is done between the two visits to discuss initial data and to plan for the second visit. Many of the cases are also seen by one of the faculty pediatric neurologists.

Our neuropsychology service is an integral member of our multidisciplinary autism center. Interested fellows can develop skills in assessing autism spectrum disorders through training in the administration of the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule and participation in weekly case conferences with a developmental/behavioral pediatrician, neuropsychologist, and behavioral psychologist.

Goals of the Fellowship: Our mission is to train pediatric neuropsychologists both as practitioners and as scientists. Although the experience is clinically based, it is quite research and academically oriented. This is an expanding field with a rapidly growing knowledge base that is the direct result of advances in technology in imaging, measurement of behavior and cognition, neurophysiology, and genetics. However, the field of pediatric neuropsychology is especially difficult because children are dynamic developing organisms often with different disorders than adults, different effects of abnormal conditions, and with both an increased vulnerability and an increased capacity to recover from disease conditions. Training scientist-practitioners in this field is especially difficult for these reasons, but rewarding in the long term benefits accrued to children from the scientific information and clinical interventions provided. Clinical experience with a wide range of neurodevelopmental and neurologic disorders and establishment of a research direction for the Fellow can only be attained in an intensive two year program that will enable mastery of this large knowledge base.

Responsibilities of the Fellow: In our clinical setting, the Fellow in pediatric neuropsychology is expected to learn to integrate and organize information about the patient including medical and neurological data, neuropsychological assessment, educational information, and interview and history. The focus is not only on cognitive, but on behavioral and emotional aspects of the child's functioning. Both environmental and biological factors are considered in the evaluation of the child in this setting. Thus the Fellow is expected not only to learn the techniques of neuropsychological assessment, but also must be able to assess the emotional and social development of the child through interview and personality assessment techniques, both objective and projective. The Fellow is supervised on every case by a faculty neuropsychologist. The first visit which often consists of an intelligence test and a few other preliminary measures, is most often carried out by a psychometrist. However, the Fellow always carries out the detailed aspects of the evaluation at the second visit. The Fellow, together with the faculty, will, at the end of the second visit, interpret results to the parents, write chart notes, and prepare the report.

Requirements: Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. or Psy.D. from an APA-approved program, preferably in clinical or school psychology, and to have completed an APA-approved internship. It is expected that the applicant will have internship level training in child and neuropsychological assessment.  Beginning in academic year 2012-2013, the Fellow salary will be $38,000 for the first year and $40,000 for the second year.  Benefits include health insurance (a family plan is available for a fee), some life insurance, 20 working days of vacation per year, and a $500.00 a year conference stipend.  Fellowship contracts are on a yearly basis, with the expectation that Fellows will stay for two years. The time period is from September l to August 31. To apply, send a letter of professional goals, a current curriculum vitae, two neuropsychological report samples, and three letters of reference (preferably two clinical supervisors and one academic/research mentor). 

Application deadline is January 31, 2012.   

Application materials should be sent to:
Richard Ziegler, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Neurology
Section Head for Pediatric Neuropsychology
