Graduate Students


The strong reputation and superior training provided by the Clinical Child Psychology Program at the University of Kansas have attracted incoming students from every region of the country, ranging from Florida to Alaska. Approximately 32 students are currently receiving training in the program, including 5 students on internship. The Clinical Child Psychology Program supports a junior colleague model and fosters a highly collaborative working environment between both faculty and students. Students are involved in a wide range of activities within the program, including research and clinical work, representation at faculty meetings, student government, and leisure activities.

Clinical and Research Interests

Graduate students within the program have the opportunity to explore a wide range of clinical and research opportunities. While each student identifies a primary research advisor with whom they complete thesis, task, and dissertation requirements, many students also explore additional projects and collaborate with more than one faculty member on research, clinical, and funded positions.
