Prospective Ph.D. Students
Dr. Schleider will review applications for a new Ph.D. student for the 2024-2025 academic year. Moving forward, Dr. Schleider will review applicants from both the Clinical Psychology PhD Program and the Health Sciences Integrated PhD Program (a non-clinical program focused on applied, social science-driven health research), via the Social Sciences & Health track. Both programs are housed within Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine.
