Opportunities for Students
I am NOT reviewing Clinical area PhD student applications this admissions cycle (i.e., to begin Fall 2023). More information on the program is available here.
RAs in the HEART Lab are involved with several studies related to relationships and health. Course credit is available for interested U students, but not required. More information is available on my lab website (see "Want to become a Research Assistant at the HEART Lab?").
