Other Comments

The Program for Anxiety and Traumatic Stress Studies (PATSS) at Weill Cornell Medical College is seeking a research-oriented Clinical Psychology graduate student for a clinical-research externship focused on trauma and psychological recovery. Major responsibilities include recruiting subjects and assessing psychiatric symptoms in hospitalized inpatients including those at the William Randolph Hearst Burn Center at New York Presbyterian Hospital. Externs will assist in all aspects of research on trauma in inpatients and outpatients, including data collection, analysis, and manuscript preparation. Successful externs will have the opportunity to conduct supervised research projects using archival and newly-collected data sets on a range of trauma populations and clinical research studies, including World Trade Center attack disaster workers, d-cycloserine-enhanced exposure therapy, and virtual reality-enhanced exposure therapy. Externs will also receive clinical experience at bedside in recently-traumatized patients and will be supervised by licensed Clinical Psychologists. Health psychology and trauma experience preferred.
