Clinical Research Training for Psychologists

The Clinical Research Training program for psychologists provides clinical psychologists with advanced training in the conceptual and pragmatic research skills required to conduct clinical research in a multidisciplinary setting. This program has a strong commitment to minority training with the aim of increasing the number of minority clinical investigators. We believe that a training environment that values diversity and is committed to improving representation in psychological science is crucial to stimulating innovations in clinical research. Consistent with this, our program seeks to promote the participation of underrepresented populations in clinical medicine, biomedical research, teaching, and service.

Fellows participate in an intensive research fellowship under the mentorship of an established clinical investigator. This fellowship 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; the opportunity to learn new quantitative skills; and advanced clinical and didactic training relevant to the fellow’s research interests.
