Florida Institute of Technology’s Clinical Psychology Doctoral (Psy.D.) program is delighted to offer a Graduate Psychology Education (GPE) training program to clinical psychology doctoral students. The primary goal of this program, funded by a grant from the Health Resource Services Administration (HRSA) of the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), is to increase the number of psychologists who are competent to provide evidence-based psychological care to culturally diverse vulnerable and underserved populations in integrated interprofessional health care settings.
A current project abstract can be accessed on the HRSA Website:
Five of the seven trainees funded by this opportunity each semester will participate in 20 hours per week practicum at Brevard Health Alliance, the county’s only Federally Qualified Health Center, which serves the community’s uninsured and underserved individuals. Two additional students will train 20 hours per week at Parrish Medical Group – Titusville, a private practice in a medically underserved area.
Students from diverse or economically-disadvantaged backgrounds are particularly encouraged to apply.
