Emily H Trittschuh, PhD

Personal Statement

As a clinical neuropsychologist who has specialized in aging, I have over 20 years of experience in the field of geriatrics. My clinical work and research has been focused on the full continuum of cognitive aging – from neurodegenerative disease of varied etiologies to healthy brain aging into the 90s and beyond. I have been based at the VA Puget Health Care System since 2008. In this time, I have developed additional and complementary interests in the older adult Veteran who has PTSD, especially how this disorder can interfere with cognition and might contribute to decline and also in the area of reducing disparities in neuropsychological care for individuals who are transgender and gender diverse. Currently, I am the Associate Director for Education and Evaluation for the VISN 20 Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) at VA Puget Sound. I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry. Provision of training for future geriatric care providers (MD, PhD, nursing, etc) is an important part of my personal mission. I also enjoy connecting with the older adult community through various events and at local senior centers.
