HPCS is a full-time doctoral program, with matriculation occurring only in the fall semester. The program trains clinical and health scientists.  Our training model emphasizes clinical research training and our curriculum is designed to be congruent with NYS licensure requirements, however, we are not yet accredited.

Competitive applicants to our program are those with solid research experience, optimally in the areas of health psychology and clinical science. Our program maintains a focus on conducting both mentored and independent research during graduate study, leading up to an original empirical dissertation study.

Below are links to information that we hope are helpful to those hoping to learn more about HPCS or to initiate an application. We hope you will review this information and contact us if you have additional questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
