Clinical science is an area of research emphasis in our department. Clinical science research focuses on the understanding, treatment, and prevention of mental health problems as well as the understanding and promotion of improved health and mental health. Persons affiliated with this area tackle clinically-related issues from developmental, social, cognitive, philosophical/theoretical, legal and forensic, and biological perspectives. The types of research range from descriptive and epidemiological studies of clinical, forensic, and health phenomena, to translational research, treatment and prevention research, and mental health service delivery, among other domains.

Membership/Affiliation in Clinical Science

Students who wish to be involved in the clinical science area must apply to and be accepted into the clinical psychology graduate program. Faculty members affiliated with this area may include those with training in clinical or other areas of psychology, who do clinical science research.
