The Clinical Health Psychology program adheres to the scientist-practitioner model and training, emphasizes the contribution of research to the understanding, treatment, and prevention of human problems, and the application of knowledge that is grounded in scientific evidence. Students are trained to work within the community to use psychological tools and techniques to promote health and prevent illness, diagnose and treat mental health conditions, apply behavioral interventions in the treatment of illness, and improve the health care system. In addition to coursework, students acquire expertise in research by completing a master degree en route to the PhD and by working in their mentor’s lab, and they receive extensive clinical training through a series of internal and external practica in the program’s clinic and in medical facilities throughout the Denver metropolitan area. The program is accredited as a clinical psychology program by the American Psychological Association.
