The Division of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is committed to revolutionizing how people get and stay mentally healthy. Division faculty are designing value-based mental health treatments, conducting research that meaningfully impacts peoples’ lives and training the next generation of psychology scientist-practitioners and leaders.

Educational Programs

The division includes the American Psychological Association–accredited Dell Medical School/Dell Children’s Medical Center Psychology Internship program and a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Pediatric Psychology. The division also hosts cross-campus collaboration and interdisciplinary training through the Integrated Behavioral Health Scholars Program and Graduate Portfolio in Integrated Behavioral Health.

Clinical Programs

Clinical psychology faculty provide integrated, evidence-based mental and behavioral health 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 division’s psychology and psychiatry faculty members are also collaborative 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.
