The program emphasizes an empirical approach to the study of psychological aspects of health and medical illness. Students are provided with didactic training in fundamentals of health psychology, pathophysiology and a variety of health-related elective courses that complement their basic training in clinical psychology. Clinical training is provided through exposure to a variety of health problems in which psychological factors may play a role or in which psychological intervention is necessary for a comprehensive treatment approach. Activities include assessment, consultation, and intervention with a variety of medical/surgical problems, inpatient consultation-liaison work within the Health Center and a monthly conference. Supervised research opportunities are also provided.
