After starting in 2016, we have now enrolled two PhD students into the program.
Similar to the broader psychological science PhD program, incoming students typically have GREs of 154-159 and GPAs of 3.600 to 4.00. Across the PhD programs, the majority of our students go on to secure academic positions. Since 2005, these positions have included tenure-track appointments at Syracuse University, George Mason University, Towson University, and Loyola University of New Orleans, clinical faculty appointments in the Department of Psychiatry at Tulane University, and post-doctoral appointments at Baylor College of Medicine, UCLA, UCSB, Johns Hopkins, and Harvard Medical School.
Graduates of the Health Psychology program are expected to have 10 publications and be prepared for the top research post-docs in the country.
