About the Program
The Counseling Psychology program at The University of Iowa is a doctoral program that was granted full accreditation by the American Psychological Association in the Spring of 1983. The program aims to train health service psychologists who are competent in counseling and psychological services informed by the integration of diverse scholarship. Our program strives to produce counseling psychologists who promote psychology as both a profession and a science and who apply acquired skills to improving psychological services to diverse communities. We are seeking to expand on our existing partnerships with the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics and the Iowa City Veteran's Administration Hospital and to build in the area of health psychology. Given our belief that the profession of psychology is constantly changing to meet human needs, our faculty and students represent a variety of backgrounds and interests and serve a diverse array of communities.
