Pilots, pilot candidates, and Air Traffic Control Specialists are sometimes required to obtain a
psychological and/or neuropsychological assessment as part of their Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) medical certification. Our HIMS-trained neuropsychologists, Dr. Robyn Kervick and Dr. Gretchen Schoenfield, provide unique and specialized examinations approved by the FAA, including administration of CogScreen-Aeromedical Edition (CogScreen-AE), if required. The purpose of testing is to evaluate for potential neurocognitive or psychological deficits that may interfere with flight performance or flight training. Depending upon the reason for referral, CogScreen-AE may be administered independently or incorporated into a more comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation.
If you have been contacted for such an exam, the FAA or your designated medical examiner will provide specific details and guidance as to which tests are required for maintenance or renewal of your special issuance medical certificate.
We understand the importance of these evaluations to a pilot’s professional life and can often schedule evaluations quickly to accommodate deadlines.
