Prospective PhD Students
I am accepting 1-2 students in our Clinical Psychology PhD program for Fall 2019-20 who have a strong interest in global mental health research that is conceived by community-based organizations – ones that address access to resource disparities, the effects of stigma on HIV care and prevention, and intergroup conflict (refer to active projects in my lab to get a better idea).
I give strong preference to applicants who have experienced-based knowledge on how research is conducted. In other words seeing a research project move from the conceptual stage to the methodological design to sometimes even conference presentations or manuscript publication. Serving as a research assistant, completing a senior/honors thesis or other types of supervised research experience is especially useful.
To apply please refer to the Howard University Graduate School general application and the Clinical Psychology Supplemental Application and Checklist.
