Prospective Students

PHHP entrance 2

Consistent with the scientist-practitioner model of the Department of Clinical & Health Psychology, graduate students are expected to be very active in research throughout their training. Each graduate student is typically engaged in numerous research projects in addition to their thesis and dissertation projects. As such, our labs are best suited for students who are pursuing careers that emphasize research as opposed to clinical practice. Previous graduate students have attained faculty positions in academic medical centers and universities.
