Clinical Medical Psychology Doctoral Programs

The Ph.D. and Psy.D. programs in Clinical Medical Psychology are currently offered on the Mercer University School of Medicine Macon Campus. Beginning in the 2014-2015 academic year, some second through fourth year courses may be offered on the Atlanta Campus.

Today, as the link between mind and body is well-recognized, more and more clinical psychologists are teaming with other healthcare providers to provide whole-person healthcare for patients (American Psychological Association Website, 2011).The interface between psychology, health, and disease represents the focus of Mercer University's Ph.D. program in Clinical Medical Psychology. Initially approved in April of 2011 by the University's Board of Trustees, the new doctoral programs are the university's first in the School of Medicine. The five-year programs in Clinical Medical Psychology are among only a handful of such programs in the United States offered within a school of medicine. They are designed to produce graduates who are eligible for licensure as practicing clinical psychologists, particularly in integrative health care settings. Graduates also will be prepared for careers in research and in higher education, especially medical education.
