Training for Psychologists

This two-year program, which follows the predoctoral internship in clinical psychology, provides psychologists with advanced training in the conceptual and pragmatic research skills required to conduct clinical research in an interdisciplinary setting. Fellows participate in an intensive research apprenticeship with an established clinical investigator. This apprenticeship typically includes several elements: the design and implementation of independent projects under the supervision of the mentor; the analysis and reporting of results from archival data, providing opportunities to learn new quantitative skills; and advanced clinical and didactic training relevant to the fellow's research interests. The program has a strong commitment to minority training with the aim of increasing the number of minority clinical investigators. Four postdoctoral stipends are available each year.
