We are committed to training students who are interested in developing careers in psychological clinical science.
If you are interested in working directly under the mentorship of Dr. Sona Dimidjian, please consider joining our group as a graduate student in clinical psychology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. You can learn more about our program on the Department of Psychology Website. The Clinical Psychology program was recognized recently by a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health as a Program of Excellence in scientifically validated treatments for mood disorders.
Graduate students working with Dr. Dimidjian receive intensive training at all levels of the research process and in multiple empirically supported treatments. Her mentorship is ideally suited for students who are interested in becoming creative and productive clinical scientists.
Dr. Dimidjian has typically admitted, on average, one graduate student per year. Competitive applicants generally have considerable prior research experience and demonstrated academic excellence in both prior coursework and standardized tests.
Dr. Dimidjian is particularly interested in applicants with interests in the treatment and prevention of depression and perinatal mental health.
