Clinical Programs

Clinical faculty provide integrated, evidence-based psychological services to patients and families across the lifespan and throughout the health care continuum, including at UT Health Austin, Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas and other community settings.

The psychology and psychiatry faculty members are also leaders in a statewide initiative to expand telehealth services to children in school settings and mental health consultation with community pediatricians through the Texas Child Mental Health Care Consortium.


As part of a top-tier research university, The University of Texas at Austin, the Dell Med Division of Psychology researchers are involved in nationally funded, high-impact research initiatives, including exploring biological bases of mood and anxiety disorders, childhood depression and trauma; incorporating technology solutions to improve clinical coordination and patient outcomes; addressing social determinants of mental health within communities that are historically underserved; and improving the mental health of veterans and their families.
