On behalf of the Clinical Science group, welcome! Whether you’re interested in joining our PhD program or curious about the work that we do here, we invite you to explore our website to learn more about who we are and what makes our program special.   

People are at the core of who we are as faculty, clinicians and as researchers. As faculty, we mentor and train the next generation so they can make a difference in people’s lives. As researchers, we ask questions and diligently work to find ways to further our understanding of mental health and treatment.

Working side by side with graduate students is an honor for all of us here at Michigan State. Seeing the successes of our graduate students in the various career paths that they’ve traveled is something we will always be proud of.

We strive to make our program a place for everyone to succeed in. In our collaborative environment, we value diverse voices and perspectives, and we treat each other with respect. We hope you will explore our website to learn more about our program and the training and scholarly opportunities it has to offer.

We welcome questions and hope that you will consider our clinical science program when choosing between different training/professional environments and collaborative opportunities.
