Education and training in clinical neuropsychology have experienced a rapid development and crystallization over the past decade and a half, paralleling the explosive growth of the specialty. However, while there has been substantial growth in the specification of training requirements and competency guidelines in the specialty of clinical neuropsychology, meaningful integration of ethnocultural issues into the training curricula must be accomplished. In this chapter, we review the historical developments in generic training of neuropsychologists, then discuss the range of issues that the specialty of neuropsychology faces given the dramatic demographic changes that are occurring in our population that have implications for the education and training of neuropsychologists.
