Honours students who have successfully completed the course prerequisites have the opportunity to apply their laboratory training in various hospital and community health-care settings.  Here, they conduct neuropsychological assessments and deliver cognitive rehabilitation interventions under the supervision of a clinical neuropsychologist.  Students gain a more profound understanding of cognitive neuropsychology through the invaluable knowledge they acquire in their practicum placements.  Students may choose between a 3.00 credit or a 6.00 credit practicum.Practicum experiences in a clinical setting can deliver additional advantages to students:

  • Students conduct supervised assessments of clients in both official languages.
  • Students participate in rehabilitation studies of individuals with cognitive impairments.
  • Students learn about clinical database input and analysis.
  • Students participate in weekly student seminar series and clinical rounds.
  • Summer jobs become available to some students following their practicum experience.
  • Participation in ongoing clinical research projects may lead to 4th year undergraduate honours theses.
