Diversity

Elizabeth McQuaidA message from Elizabeth McQuaid, PhD, ABPP 
Director, Clinical Psychology Training Programs at Brown: A Consortium of the Providence VA Medical Center, Lifespan, and Care New England

The Clinical Psychology Training Programs at Brown are committed to increasing the number of trainees from diverse backgrounds, supporting research with diverse populations, and promoting cultural competence in training and clinical services. Based on this commitment, the Clinical Psychology Training Programs at Brown established a Diversity Committee in 2000, which has been an ongoing, vibrant element of our program.  We have a strong commitment to integrating diverse cultural perspectives into our core curriculum, provided ongoing educational opportunities for trainees and faculty, and promoted awareness of issues of diversity within all training sites in the consortium. These initiatives remain central to our program’s mission as we prepare to train the next generation of academics, clinical scientists, and practitioners.
