Dr. Soble is an Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry and Neurology at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine. He also is board certified in Clinical Neuropsychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) and a Fellow of the American Psychological Society (Division 40: Society for Clinical Neuropsychology). He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology as well as a master’s degree and Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He completed a 1-year Clinical Psychology Internship and 2-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology at the James A. Haley VA Hospital in Tampa, FL. While on Fellowship, he also trained at the University of South Florida/Tampa General Hospital Comprehensive Epilepsy Program. Prior to joining the faculty at UIC, he was a VA Staff Neuropsychologist at the South Texas Veterans Healthcare System in San Antonio, TX. His clinical interests include neuropsychological assessment of adults with dementia, complex neurological/medical disorders, epilepsy, and traumatic brain injury (TBI) (TBI)/concussion, as well as personality assessment and working with veteran/active duty military populations. His research broadly investigates the psychometric/diagnostic properties and clinical utility of neuropsychological tests (e.g., performance validity tests), as well as neuropsychological sequalae associated psychiatric (e.g., ADHD) and neurological disorders (e.g., electrical shock injury; TBI; cerebrovascular disease).
