Dr. Andrew Molnar '04
Dr. Andrew Molnar '04 was the guest speaker for the Psychology Speakers Series on Friday afternoon, April 19. His presentation was titled "Conducting Pediatric Neuropsychological Research within Clinical Settings". The Psychology Department, Psi Chi, and the J. William and Katherine C. Asher Endowed Research Fund sponsor the Psychology Speakers Series.
Andrew Molnar completed a Ph.D. in August 2012 and a M.A. in December 2008 in
Clinical-Child/Adolescent Psychology at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois. As a requirement of the doctorate, he fulfilled professional internship training at Baylor College of Medicine/Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, Texas with a dual concentration in clinical-child psychology and pediatric neuropsychology.
He is currently a fellow in pediatric neuropsychology at Washington University School of Medicine/St. Louis Children's Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. Dr. Molnar conducts neuropsychological assessments on children/adolescents with chronic medical and treatment backgrounds and works with their families and schools to reintegrate youth back into school and community settings. As part of the fellowship training, he maintains broad clinical interests in many medical and treatment populations, but has emerging interests in hematology/oncology populations. He also has therapy and research interests, especially with preschool-aged children and their families.
Upon completion of the current fellowship, he wants to obtain a faculty position within a children's hospital and academic medical center setting where he can continue to pursue both his clinical and research interests.
