Margaret Crossley joined the U of S Department of Psychology in 1994, where she has earned a reputation for seamlessly blending research, hands-on clinical training for graduate students, supervision of graduate student research and public service. She goes to great lengths to make herself available to her students—efforts that earned her the U of S Alumni Association’s Alumni Mentorship Award in 2005.
As a neuropsychologist, Crossley specializes in the early-stage detection and diagnosis of dementia. In 1994, she established the Aging Research Memory Clinic, providing services to clients and their families in Saskatoon and area. She served as director of the clinic until 2004, when the clinic was integrated with the Rural and Remote Memory Clinic.
Crossley and her students have provided neuropsychological services to hundreds of patients and consultations to hundreds of families free of charge.
