Our faculty members work in three core scientific areas: developmental psychopathology, individual differences and personality, and biological bases of behavior. In addition to these core scientific areas, we all share core values of multi-disciplinary work, attention to diversity, and ethical practice. All faculty conduct funded research in their areas of interest and are productive, highly-cited scholars.

Our graduate students have the opportunity to train with faculty who are leading researchers in their fields, conducting cutting-edge clinical science research. Our mentorship model encourages an apprenticeship relationship between the student and advisor who helps them to develop individualized training experiences and closely guides them through our program. We also strongly encourage students to work in multiple labs and develop expertise in multiple methodologies that they may apply to their own work. Our graduate students train in evidence-based assessment and therapy in our state-of-the-art Psychological Clinic with broad access to the community population as clients. Clinical supervisors include the core faculty as well as experienced clinicians in the community. Our bi-weekly Clinical Science Forum is an opportunity for students and faculty to hear and give presentations, typically integrating both clinical cases or treatment and research.

We expect that our graduates will go on to be leaders and innovators in the field of psychological clinical science. We instill in our graduates a passion for life-long learning that we see them apply in their chosen careers. We are very proud of the varied paths they have chosen and the work they have contributed to our field.

We hope you will explore our website to learn more about our program and the training and scholarly opportunities it has to offer! We welcome questions and hope that you will consider our clinical science program when choosing between different training/professional environments and collaborative opportunities.

    • As a soon to be graduate student considering it myself, quite respected. University of Cincinnati I have never even heard of honestly. I believe the best (staying public) for that program is considered to be the University of Chicago though. And you get to be on the same campus as the nuclear countdown clock. I believe we are at three minutes to midnight right now.
