Diagnostic Services

Program Overview

The Neuropsychology Department provides neuropsychological and psychodiagnostic evaluations hospital-wide for adult and geriatric patients with a variety of problems ranging from neurodegenerative disorders to acute psychiatric presentation. Our neuropsychologists also consult to all McLean units and programs and perform evaluations on outpatients from the community.

Our core strengths include the assessment of neurocognitive deficits, primary psychiatric diagnoses, and personality disorders.

Founded in 1994 by Donald Davidoff, PhD, Chief of the Neuropsychology Department, our program is active in training the next generation of neuropsychologists. Read more about Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Adult/Geriatric Clinical Neuropsychology.
