INSIDE THE DEPARTMENT
As an integral part of the School of Medicine, the Department of Medical and Clinical Psychology (MPS) is committed to excellence in psychology during periods of both peace and war. We provide the nation with military clinical psychologists dedicated to career service in the Department of Defense, as well as psychologists dedicated to both research and evidence-based clinical care and to advancing the health of the uniformed services and the nation. We serve the uniformed services and the nation as a premier graduate program in psychology with a worldwide perspective for education, research, policy, service, and consultation, and we are unique in relating these activities to military medicine, disaster medicine, and military readiness.
Military psychologists earn the privilege and unique opportunity to provide care to Service members when they are home or deployed in the field. Military psychologists are stationed all over the world and not only provide care, conduct research, inform and set policy, but are also teachers and leaders throughout the military. Civilian psychology graduates from our program have become leading researchers and administrators, who have unparalleled experience working within military and veteran settings.
