APAHC Research

Research Committee of the Association of Psychologists in Academic Health Centers

The Research Committee (RC) is comprised of current members of APAHC, including student members. The RC has been involved in a number of projects to advance the role of psychologists in academic health centers. With that objective in mind, RC members have met and developed collaborative relationships with directors and staff of the AAMC Center for Workforce Studies, the AAMC Data Operations Center, the APA Science Directorate, and the APA Center for Workforce Studies. The RC has been involved in a number of projects. We have also presented at a variety of national conferences, and a manuscript was recently accepted for publication based on one of these presentations. Additional research projects are in progress, or in planning. Below is list of recent presentations made by members of the RC based on the RC’s ongoing research agenda and activities:
