2020 Diversifying Clinical Psychology Networking Event

The Council of University Directors of Clinical Psychology (CUDCP) participates in a networking event every year with the purpose of increasing recruitment of students from underrepresented populations for Clinical Psychology PhD programs. During the event, participants interested in applying to Clinical Psychology PhD Programs have an opportunity to meet and network with directors of Clinical Psychology PhD Programs, as well as present a research poster and attend professional development workshops.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students to learn about specific doctoral programs, ask questions, and network with an array of psychologists across the nation. Students who have presented at prior CUDCP Diversifying Clinical Psychology events have had great success gaining admission in the very competitive clinical psychology application process and reported benefitting from the presenting workshops.

The next meeting will be on January 17-18, 2020 in Austin, TX. There is no cost associated with registering for this event. Interested students should fill out the online application listed on the flyer.  Notifications of acceptance to attend the event will be sent out on a rolling basis. Presenting a research poster at the event is not required but is highly encouraged. Additional information will be emailed to those who register for the event.
Please register by January 8, 2020.

Unfortunately, CUDCP does not have funding to pay for students' lodging or travel, but there will be cash awards and recognition for the best posters presented at the event. Also, to reduce cost, we offer students the possibility of sharing rooms with other attending students.

Thank you and please feel free to send any questions our way!
