Our department offers the following degrees: (1) Ph.D. in Medical Psychology [open to civilian and military students] that focuses on biobehavioral research, and (2) Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology which has two tracks. The Clinical Psychology program follows a scientist-practitioner model that emphasizes biopsychosocial research and evidence-based clinical practice. Track 1 - The Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology-Military Track focuses on practice in clinical and operational military settings and training in relevant research. This track is open to active duty military and civilians entering military service. Track 2 - The Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology-Dual Track combines medical and clinical psychology training with an emphasis on basic and applied research. This track is open to civilian students.
