Peter H. Van Oot, PhD

Professor College of Psychology
Clinical Psychology

Dr. Van Oot has taught at the graduate level for 30 years and has been with John F. Kennedy University since 1995. He teaches BioPsychology and Psychopharmacology as core courses and a Neuropsychology sequence, Health Psychology, advanced CBT, and Pediatric/Geriatric Psychopharmacology as electives. His research background includes neuroanatomy, neurophysiology of epilepsy, psychopharmacology, sleep, and anxiety disorders; and he continues to focus on the physiological or medical processes that underlie or contribute to psychological disturbances.

He believes in a mentorship model of supervision hoping to impart to his students "the experience and direction I wish I would have received from my advisors - but oftentimes didn't."

He is a member of APA Division 38, and 40, the National Academy of Neuropsychology (NAN), the Northern California Neuropsychology Forum (NCNF), and the Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM).

Dr. Van Oot maintains a consultation-based private practice, specializing in neuropsychological and general psychological assessment/evaluation.
