Dr. Van Tubbergen is a Clinical Associate Professor who joined the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation after completing a post-doctoral fellowship in this same department. She has been practicing in this department as a Rehabilitation Psychologist and Neuropsychologist for twenty years and is now the Director of the Pediatric NeuroRehabilitation Program and a leader in the BRAIN clinic, both of which emphasize the acute outpatient, multi-disciplinary needs of patients with acquired brain insult. Dr. Van Tubbergen completed her graduate training at Central Michigan University in Clinical Psychology and completed her internship training at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst in the Counseling and Assessment center. Previous research includes the development of adapted techniques and accessible measures so that patients with neurological motor and language impairments can better participate in neuropsychological assessment. She is currently a co-PI for the Michigan arm of a national, multi-site project to incorporate web-based cognitive behavioral intervention after brain injury into standard clinical practice. She has also developed a concussion management clinic incorporating treatment and intervention strategies into neuropsychological assessment for patients with prolonged post-concussive symptoms. She provides supervision to fellows on the inpatient rehabilitation unit and in intervention rotations through the outpatient neurorehabilitation program.
