Children’s Mental Health Services Training Program

The Department provides a focus on research on the delivery, organization and financing of mental health services. The doctoral program is designed to prepare individuals for research, planning or evaluation careers in both public and academic settings. The Department participates in the Center on Organization and Financing of Care for the Severely Mentally Ill, and has research databases for research projects. Applicants to a doctoral program in this area should have a clinical background or a disciplinary focus on economics, political science, sociology or related discipline. 

Financial support is available for doctoral and postdoctoral level individuals through the Economics of Mental Health program in the Department of Health Policy and Management and the Child Mental Health Services Training program. The training program requirements include courses beyond the doctoral requirements of the Department of Mental Health, in the Department of Health Policy and Management, the Department of Epidemiology and the Department of Biostatistics. These requirements will be discussed by the training program director in the first quarter.
