Involvement in research and clinical fieldwork offers unparalleled opportunites for mentorship, personal grown, and depth of understanding of clinical phenomena. For this reason, students in the MA program are strongly encouraged to volunteer in research labs or clinical fieldwork placements in addition to coursework.  Students volunteer in dozens of diverse fieldwork and research sites around New York City, including the New York State Psychiatric Institute, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center, and NYU Rusk Institute. Because of the broad diversity of research interests our students bring, it is not possible for the program to provide research mentorship directly for every student, as such resourceful students use available networks and consult with advisors to locate research and fieldwork opportunites that best fit their specific interests.
