Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology - Military Clinical Psychology Track
This nationally recognized track within the Adler School's Psy.D. program prepares students for work as military clinical psychologists— in high demand for their specialized knowledge and approaches to working with the distinct psychological needs of military personnel, retirees, veterans, and their families. Long marginalized within society, military veterans collectively suffer above-average rates of psychological problems, substance abuse, suicide, and chronic homelessness. Whether as civilians or commissioned military personnel, military clinical psychologists are sought out to address these issues in positions in research, educational and medical facilities; at military schools and bases; and in government including agencies such as the Pentagon and Service Headquarters Commands. Responsibilities of military psychologists can entail direct psychological services and counseling for military personnel and their families, during deployment and upon returning to civilian life. Military psychologists also provide clinical support for those who have experienced injuries and trauma, PTSD and other psychological impacts as a result of military service. They also advance research and understanding on the psychology of modern combat and military operations.
