Neuropsychologists and Clinical Neuropsychologists

Outlook

The U.S. Department of Labor projects that employment for psychologists will grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2026. There will continue to be employment opportunities in hospitals, mental health centers, schools, and social service agencies, as well as in consulting firms and private companies. The growth of the aging population will require the expertise of neuropsychologists to diagnose and treat dementia and other brain diseases and disorders. The growing interest in psychological services for other special groups, such as children, will also create job opportunities for neuropsychologists and clinical neuropsychologists. Many of these areas depend on government funding, however, and could be adversely affected in an economic downswing when spending is likely to be curtailed. The best job prospects will be in business and industry, and the outlook is good for neuropsychologists who are in full-time independent practice.
