Yearly Program Costs

All clinical doctoral students in good standing receive a minimum of 4 years of assistantship support. (Over the last 10 years we have also been able to offer assistantships to students in their 5th or 6th year of training as well). These assistantships require approximately 20 hours of work a week, which may involve research, clinical skills, teaching, or departmental service.

We make every effort to provide assistantship arrangements that are consistent with our program's training goals. All students complete one or more years of assistantship in their mentor's research lab.آ  Other assistantships include clinical training at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, a private psychological practice, a local psychiatric hospital, and a facility that provides evaluations for children with rare handicapping conditions. Research assistantships include working at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital with staff in psychology, research at the Memphis Veterans Affairs Medical Center, or working on the many grants held by our program's faculty. Recent grants addressed topics such as the treatment of PTSD, substance abuse, brief interventions, grief and bereavement, gambling behavior, and pediatrician advice to parents against smoking. We encourage applicants to ask about current assistantship opportunities, as they change frequently.

Starting in the 2013 – 2014 academic year, students without Master's Degrees will receive $13,000 annually for their assistantship, and those with Master's Degrees receive $14,000 annually. In addition, students supported by assistantships currently have their tuition waived (both in-state and out-of-state). Thus, tuition costs are covered for students in good standing who are supported on our assistantship program. For students who remain in the program beyond their supported years, tuition averages $5,155.00 per semester.

In addition to assistantships and tuition waivers, our students have access to generous professional travel support funds through both the graduate school and the department.آ

Minority Recruitment

We welcome applications from individuals with diverse backgrounds. Currently, approximately 15% of our clinical doctoral students represent Asian, African American, and Hispanic heritages. Memphis itself is a highly diverse city, giving our students exceptional opportunities to develop clinical skills with minority clients. In addition, many of our clinical faculty members are specifically interested in minority populations; thus, students have a range of opportunities to collaborate on research addressing diversity.
