Fellows will be appointed for two years. In some instances, an optional third year may be possible. It is expected that about one-third of the fellow's time will be spent in formal seminars. All fellows take a core Health Psychology Seminar and a Research Process Seminar in both years of the fellowship and may take other courses and seminars.
The remaining two-thirds of the fellow's time will be spent in research. Fellows will participate in their faculty mentor's research laboratory and will develop their own research study.
