Membership Guidelines

 
Membership of the Division of Neuropsychology is open to all current PSI graduate members.


Membership entitles psychologists to attendance at our regular education and training events and to regular sharing and dissemination of information via email.

There are two levels of membership within the Division of Neuropsychology – Full Membership and Affiliate Membership. Because of the disparate nature of the discipline of Neuropsychology a further distinction is made based on eligibility for practitioner status in Clinical Neuropsychology. 

Division membership application forms are available in download section of this page.

Full Member (Ordinary Status):

All graduate members of the Society who have obtained a post-graduate degree of at least Master’s level in which the area of neuropsychology/neuroscience was the primary topic. 

Full Member (Practitioner Status):

All graduate members of the Society deemed eligible for Full Membership (Practitioner Status) as outlined below.

Affiliate Member:

Graduate members of the Society pursuing a post-graduate training course leading to eligibility for Full Membership.

Graduate members of the Society who are at the time of application working in the area of Neuropsychology or in the disciplines of Neuroscience, but who do not otherwise meet the criteria for Full Membership.

Or

Any other graduate member of the Society with an interest in the science/practice of Neuropsychology.

1. Postgraduate qualification in Clinical Psychology accredited by PSI plus 24 months full-time clinically relevant experience in Clinical Neuropsychology that has been supervised by a Senior Clinical Neuropsychologist or the equivalent thereof.

This provision will be open for a limited time, which will be in part determined by the availability of accredited programmes nationally.

Full Membership (Practitioner Status) will be granted to those who, at the time of Division of Neuropsychology formation, do not meet the criteria for Full Membership (Practitioner Status) as outlined in 1 and 2 above, but who have at least two years full-time relevant work experience specifically in the area of Clinical Neuropsychology. (This provision is only open to those who are employed at the time of application in the position of Clinical Neuropsychologist in a recognised HSE or equivalent hospital/institution or who can demonstrate that they are working in the capacity of a Clinical Neuropsychologist (albeit with a different job title), at the time of Division of Neuropsychology formation.
