Graduate Psychology Education (GPE) Training Grant
Integrated Behavioral Healthcare Training Project
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.
