The PhD Clinical Psychology program faculty is a talented and highly distinguished group of psychologists from across the globe, with wide-ranging clinical and research specialties.

  • As a whole, the faculty members support evidence-based approaches to practice and are actively involved in important clinical research.
  • Core faculty – those primarily based at Palo Alto University’s (PAU) main campus provide the backbone of the program.
  • In addition, PAU’s associated faculty spends at least 20% of their time teaching and supervising research at the university. Many of these faculty members have appointments with the VA Palo Alto Health Care System and bring important insights from their work there.
  • Finally, a dedicated group of adjunct faculty members provides teaching and clinical supervision in areas that are not otherwise represented by core or associated faculty.
