Roles and responsibilities
Under the supervision of Noah Silverberg, PhD, ABPP-CN, the fellow will contribute to ongoing studies in at least two of the following streams: (1) mental health complications after concussion and prevention strategies, (2) interventions for fear avoidance behaviour after concussion, (3) functional (psychogenic) cognitive disorder. They will also be expected to develop their own program of research and apply for external grant funding. The fellow may spend 100% of their time on research or devote up to 40% of their time in clinical training, providing cognitive-behavioural therapy to people with persistent symptoms following concussion in the context of a research study and/or on an external adult neuropsychology placement within the Vancouver Coastal Health system.
