Neuropsychological Outcome in Long COVID-19 Patients

Abstract: COVID-19 is perhaps the most serious public health crisis in decades due to the widespread impact on society and individuals. This presentation will examine the common issues neuropsychologists face when evaluating adult patients with long-term COVID-19 symptoms and complaints.  The research literature is only now starting to emerge, and there is a considerable amount still unknown about the long-term outcome of COVID-19. However, initial empirical data and case presentation will illustrate common issues seen in adults with long-term COVID-19 complaints as well as limitations to that data related to health disparities.


Dr. Whiteside is a board certified clinical neuropsychologist and Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Minnesota. He is also the Director of Training for the Neuropsychology Division and is currently working on collaborative research examining cognitive sequelae of severe COVID-19 infection. Dr. Whiteside earned his PhD from the University of Nebraska after completing internship at the Ann Arbor VA Medical Center, and he completed postdoctoral training in neuropsychology at the Albuquerque VA Medical Center. Dr. Whiteside is a native Midwesterner, who serves as the Program Director for the Clinical Neuropsychology Residency program. He is actively involved in clinical neuropsychological practice, teaching, research, and community service. In addition to COVID-19, his research interests focus primarily on performance validity tests and personality assessment measures in neuropsychological assessment. He is an Associate Editor for The Clinical Neuropsychologist. He is currently President of the Association of Postdoctoral Programs in Clinical Neuropsychology (APPCN) and is a member of the Steering Committee for the Minnesota Update Conference, which will focus on revising the Houston Conference neuropsychology training guidelines.
