About the Student Committee

Rationale:

The purpose of the ANA Student Committee is to create a central group led by trainees (students, interns, and postdoctoral fellows) under the auspice of the larger ANA organization in order to increase trainee membership, participation, and collaboration; to keep ANA informed of trainee needs within ANA and the field of neuropsychology; and to create an interactive environment that enriches the relationship between trainees and current professionals.

Mission Statement:

The mission of the ANA Student Committee is to: a) foster a community for neuropsychology trainees of Asian descent or trainees working with individuals of Asian descent; b) promote the professional development, cultural competency, and international collaboration of ANA trainees; and c) enhance ANA’s mission to ensure the accessibility and provision of excellent, culturally sensitive neuropsychological services for individuals of Asian descent with trainee-led initiatives.

Accomplishment:

The ANA Student Committee has been working hard in its inaugural year! We have established many new initiatives, including our monthly Community Corner bringing you ANA committee updates, member accomplishments, and trainee discussions. Our monthly Listserv Research Digest showcases the latest in research relevant to ANA’s mission. Our Trainee Membership Database has also been established, a trainee directory that we are adapting to help connect our trainees for a variety of purposes, including bridging students with interns and fellows to discuss their experiences at training sites of interest. Additionally, the committee has developed a new trainee webinar series, starting with our recent webinar “Demystifying Statistics for Neuropsychologists” presented by Dr. Nicholas S. Thaler. Finally, you can also see updates and content relevant to our students on social media such as Twitter (@AsianNeuropsych) and the ANA Newsletter, and connect with us at our student social events.
