Drs. McClenen and Landoll are co-directors of the pSyTORM (pSychological Training, Operations, and Research in the Military; pronounced ‘storm’) Lab. The pSyTORM lab is focused on developing military psychologists as leaders in both clinical application and responsible conduct of research focused on military psychology. Students in the pSyTORM lab are expected to develop research skills that complement the work of active duty clinical psychologists as scientist-practitioners. This includes an emphasis on program evaluation and quality improvement as well as conducting collaborative research across the Military Health System with anticipated relevance at all levels from tactical to strategic. The lab operates under a co-mentorship model which involves joint mentorship meetings and weekly planning meetings with lab members. Other military-affiliated faculty participate in the lab as appropriate.
