Welcome to Our Department
The mission of the Medical and Clinical Psychology Department is twofold: (1) to train providers and researchers in the practice, science, and dissemination of evidence-based clinical, health, and military psychology to serve the Uniformed Services; and (2) to conduct research, provide education, and consult on behavioral health topics of importance to the Department of Defense and the Nation.
Our department currently includes 9 full-time faculty members, more than 40 adjunct faculty members, nearly 60 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, and a number of support staff. Given the diversity of our students, faculty, and staff, the Department provides a rich environment for discovery of new knowledge and its clinical application to important health and psychological conditions.
