September 10, 2013

Thank you for your interest in doctoral studies in Health Psychology at East Carolina University. Our program began in 2007 and endeavors to produce state-of-the-art scientist practitioners in health psychology. The Department of Psychology at East Carolina University offers a Ph.D. program in health psychology with a concentration in clinical health. Our program combines a lifespan approach to understanding health with an emphasis on prevention and care, from primary to tertiary, within mental health and healthcare settings. Students are trained in both research and practice, with practicum experiences in our in-house psychology clinic (PASS Clinic), as well as primary care, and outpatient and inpatient medical settings across medical subspecialties. For example, some program faculty provide psychological services in medical clinics, such as cardiology, family medicine, and pediatrics, accomplishing fully integrated psychosocial care with ongoing medical care.

We believe the training program at East Carolina University is among the most innovative in the country with training as a clinical psychologist and an emphasis on health psychology in clinical medical settings. We hope you agree and will consider East Carolina for your future studies. Tomorrow Starts Here.

Go Pirates!
