Dear colleagues,

You may already be aware that the Minnesota Conference (MNC) took place a little while ago. The aim of this conference was to update the Houston Conference guidelines on education and training in Clinical Neuropsychology, which have underpinned Clinical Neuropsychology training in the US since they were developed in 1997. The Minnesota conference set out to provide a set of Competency Guidelines for Education and Training in Clinical Neuropsychology that reflect the current vision and core values of the field of clinical neuropsychology.

The Minnesota Conference group has now produced a draft of the guidelines and they are seeking feedback on the draft. INS had two representatives as delegates, Dr Glenn Smith (US) and Dr Ingram Wright (UK). We would like to invite all INS members to read and provide feedback on the draft guidelines.

Whilst the guidelines are primarily written to guide education and training in clinical neuropsychology in North America, we believe that an international perspective on the guidelines would be useful for several different reasons. Firstly, we feel it will be useful for the group developing the guidelines to have feedback from colleagues around the world. Secondly the guidelines are likely to influence similar documents in countries around the world and so having input to the process from an international perspective will be useful. Hence, we invite colleagues both within North America and beyond to review and give feedback on the draft guidelines.

Please give your feedback via the SURVEY LINK

The deadline for responses is June 19th.
