It is my understanding that the average clinical neuropsychologist in private practice makes $120K/year. Uh, yeah, it's possible that they could make 120k a year... however.... the ones making that much have a PH.D and are good at what they do.
On AllPsychologySchools.com it states that the mean income for a neuropsychologist in private practice is 127,000 with a median income of 105,000. I have read on a neuropsychology forum that neuropsychologist in hospitals make between 60,000 - 80,000 starting. It probably varies depending on the hospital and part of the country you are in. If you are interested more just google neuropsychologist starting salary and a lot of blogs will come up you have to read through a lot but that question is always asked. Hope this helps
