Student Admissions, Outcomes, and Other Data

For our graduate program, we try to recruit students with excellent academic, and research credentials, particularly those that imply a good fit between a prospective student and our program’s clinical science training model. We admit fewer than 3% of the 300+ applicants to our program every year, and of these individuals, typically more than 80% accept our invitation and enroll.

Once in the program, students have very low attrition (only two students has left among those admitted since 1993). In recent years, the modal time to degree of our Ph.D. recipients has been about five or six years, which means that our students progress steadily through the program, if not at a blinding speed. Over the course of their time here, our students become professionally active and identified. Upon graduation, virtually all of them take a post-doctoral or assistant professorship.
