The graduate students in our clinical psychology doctoral program are the backbone of the program. The program has 25-30 active graduate students at any one time, and all students are actively involved in running the research labs, staffing the training clinic, and assisting in course instruction. The quality of our students is evidenced by their high-level of research productivity (see table below) and their success on the internship and job market, including a 100% match rate to American Psychological Association (APA) accredited APPIC internship for more than 10 years.
The research, teaching, and clinical work conducted by our graduate students have earned awards, grants, and fellowships in the field, including:
Pre-Doctoral Fellowships from the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, Autism Speaks, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
Research grants from the Mind and Life Institute, the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation, the Organization for Autism Research, the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, and the Academy for Eating Disorders.
Poster awards from major professional organizations, such as the Association for Psychological Science, the American Psychological Association, Michigan Psychological Association, and Statistics in Application.
