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.

What is an academic health center psychologist?
Academic health psychologists work in settings with a tradition of integrated and interdisciplinary service, research, and education, which may include teaching hospitals, medical schools, allied health schools, and/or VA/Military Medical Centers. In those settings, they model and define psychologists’ roles in health and illness for their trainees and for other health professions.
