The PhD program in Rehabilitation Sciences is an exciting and completely unique opportunity for students focused on pursuing a career in experimental psychopathology/clinical mental health research. BU's Sargent College has a long history of collaborative research and training in the broadly defined fields of health and rehabilitation sciences. The PhD program is tailored to students interested in receiving doctoral training that prepares them for a career in interdisciplinary health-focused academic research. While there is no formal clinical training as part of the program, there are ample opportunities for clinical interviewing and regular patient contact as a member of the AMP Lab. Students take coursework both within the program and in departments outside of Sargent College, including the graduate programs in Neuroscience and Psychological & Brain Sciences. The lab also has several active collaborations with faculty in the Clinical and Brain, Behavior, & Cognition tracks in the department of Psychological & Brain Sciences.
