New Guidelines for Listserv Research Activities
APAHC is pleased to offer a new opportunity for members to have announcements posted to the APAHC listserv to solicit participants for research studies. Previously, such requests were not permitted on the listserv, but now a process has been developed for reviewing them. At least one member of the research team must be an APAHC member. Interested members can contact APAHC by Email to request an application or obtain additional information about this opportunity. Applications will be reviewed by members of the APAHC Research Committee monthly. All approved requests will be posted monthly on the listserv in digest form.
The Association of Psychologists in Academic Health Centers (APAHC) is Section 8 of the Society of Clinical Psychology (Division 12 of APA). The purpose of the Association is to promote the discipline and profession of psychology in academic health centers and affiliated units (e.g., schools of medicine, nursing, public health, dentistry, pharmacy, health professions; Veterans Affairs Medical Centers, teaching hospitals and other similar entities) to encourage and support psychologists’ participation in institutional governance, research, educational programs, administration, leadership, and policy development.
The Association’s mission is to strengthen the role of psychology and behavioral science in health care research, clinical care, and the education of medical students, graduate students, pre and post doctoral psychology fellows, intern and resident physicians, and other health professionals. By fostering active leadership roles for psychologists in all facets of training, clinical practice, research, and administration in academic health centers, the Association seeks to promote the status, roles and collegiality of psychologists with other health care professionals.
APAHC provides a venue for peer mentoring from trainee through senior career status.
APAHC provides leadership in issues related to clinical service, education and training, research, and governance.
APAHC organizes a biennial conference focused on the work of psychologists in academic health centers.
APAHC collaborates with the American Psychological Association (APA), the Association of American Medical Colleagues (AAMC), and other organizations to promote the values and mission of our organization.
