I thought it may be helpful to applicants/students/others to list and/or describe a typical week of practice in your given setting. People don't need to keep my formatting, I just chose it bc it fits how I break down my time. Setting: Academic Med: (PM&R in-pt consult, out-pt neuropsych, research) Direct Pt Contact: 10-15hr in-pt, 3-6hr out-pt. For in-pt I do initial eval consults, a bit of supportive therapy, capacity evals, brief cog eval, risk evals, and pt/family education. Out-pt neuropsych...only interview intakes and feedback sessions (w. an additional 10-25hr of weekly testing & scoring done by psychometricians). Notes/Report Writing: 8-10hr in-pt, 10-15hr out-pt...which includes quite a bit of digging through med records. Clinical Mtgs: 3-4hr. Team meetings and impromptu gatherings to talk about acute pt problems. Consultation Time: 2-4hr w. physicians, therapists, nurses, etc. Administrative Paperwork:4-6hr (mostly billing, some e-mailing about mtgs) Administrative Mtgs: 1-3hr Research Mtgs: 2-3hr Research Writing/Reading/Stat'ing: 4-8hr Journal Reading/Review 3-5hr Total Hrs/wk: ~50-60hr. My only caveat is that I have a lot of flexibility in my wk, so I could cut down to 40-45hr/wk...but I'd miss out on a lot of really interesting research and related activities that I typically enjoy.
