Prospective Students

Dr. Janicke and Dr. Fedele are anticipating accepting graduate students for Fall 2017. Broadly, prospective students who have a strong interest in pediatric psychology, health promotion, and health behavior change are encouraged to apply. Please see respective lab pages for Dr. Janicke and Dr. Fedele to learn about lab foci and ongoing research initiatives. Consistent with the scientist-practitioner model of the Department of Clinical & Health Psychology, graduate students are expected to be very active in research throughout their training. Each graduate student is typically engaged in numerous research projects in addition to their thesis and dissertation projects. As such, our labs are best suited for students who are pursuing careers that emphasize research as opposed to clinical practice. Previous graduate students have attained faculty positions in academic medical centers and universities. Students are strongly encouraged to pursue publication of their work, present their research at national conference (e.g., Society of Pediatric Psychology Annual Conference), and pursue funding opportunities. We are proud to note that our students have been very successful in their research endeavors, as can be seen on this website.
