Post-Doctoral Programs


The Department of Clinical and Health Psychology has a strong history of training post-doctoral fellows in research and clinical service. Each year we typically admit 3-4 new post-doctoral associates in three broad areas of training (clinical child-pediatric psychology, health psychology, and neuropsychology). Positions typically last for 2 years. As such there are usually 6-8 clinical post-doctoral associate positions ongoing each year across the three areas.
