Welcome to the website for the Association of Neuropsychology Students in Training (ANST)!
ANST is the student organization for Division 40 (Clinical Neuropsychology) of APA. Clinical neuropsychology is a rapidly expanding profession that is one of the largest specialty groups within psychology with increasing numbers of graduate students in training to enter the field of clinical neuropsychology.
The purpose of ANST is to provide a voice for students in training in clinical neuropsychology, provide a platform where students in training can come together to discuss training issues, and provide many important resources and services for aspiring clinical neuropsychologists. In addition, through its affiliation with Division 40 of APA, students involved with ANST have the opportunity to learn about issues that affect our professional and scientific interests.
To become involved with ANST, we encourage you to become a student affiliate member of both APA and Division 40. Although APA membership is no longer required prior to joining Division 40, there are still a wealth of benefits in being a member of APA and its graduate student association (APAGS) and we strongly encourage you to join both. By joining these organizations, you can:
1) Share professional knowledge.
2) Make new friends in your field.
3) Receive the latest journals and newsletters in your field.
4) Get published.
5) Enhance leadership skills.
6) Collaborate with colleagues.
7) Advocate for psychologists' input into social policy.
8) Engage in the new division social networking sites.
9) Be recognized with awards, grants, and fellowship.
10) Find and/or be a mentor.
It is important to note that there is no separate application to join ANST: as a student member of APA Division 40, you are automatically a member of ANST! Complete the Division 40 application here.
Next, students at all levels of training are encouraged to join and participate on the ANST listserv, check to see if your program has an ANST chapter and - if not - become an ANST Chapter Representative, and attend our educational seminars and social events at conferences for APA and INS!
On behalf of the ANST Committee Members and Division 40 of APA, I hope that you will consider membership with Division 40 and take advantage of the resources and networking offered through ANST. Additional information may be found in our organizational brochure. Welcome to ANST!

ANST and Division 40 are currently working to put together a list of training programs in neuropsychology but this is not yet available.
