Health Psychology and Clinical Science at The Graduate Center

The Ph.D. program in Health Psychology and Clinical Science offers an innovative training approach that reflects highly demanded and growing areas in psychological science. The primary goal of this program is to train outstanding research scientists in the biopsychosocial determinants of physical and mental health and how to design and evaluate interventions to improve the physical and mental health of individuals, families, and communities. The effects of biological, cognitive, and contextual forces are critical to understanding the risk and protective processes that underlie both mental and physical health.
