Marshall Psychiatry adds first neuropsychologist

The Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine and Marshall Health welcomed the school’s first neuropsychologist to its clinical faculty this month.

Michelle C. Hudson, Psy.D., joined the department of psychiatry and behavioral health as an assistant professor Oct. 16. She will assist in the evaluation and diagnosis of those with memory and dementia disorders, head trauma, stroke, epilepsy and many other neurologic disorders.

Hudson earned her Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology and a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology, both at Adler University in Chicago. She also completed a neuropsychology fellowship at the University of Toledo (Ohio) Medical Center.

“We are very fortunate to recruit Dr. Michelle Hudson, a fellowship-trained neuropsychologist, to Marshall,” said Suzanne Holroyd, M.D., chair of psychiatry and behavioral medicine. “There is a huge unmet need for neuropsychology services throughout this region. We look forward to her expertise in the care of our patients.”
