Student Training

Over the past 15 years more than 50 doctoral students in clinical psychology have received clinical training through the AD/HD Clinic. The AD/HD Clinic has also provided graduate level clinical training to students from other health care training programs, including:

  • Family Practice residents from the UNC School of Medicine based at Cone Hospital
  • Child Psychiatry fellows from Wake Forest University School of Medicine
  • Graduate students from the Masters degree program in Clinical Psychology at Appalachian State University
  • Graduate students from the Masters degree program in Counseling at UNCG
  • Graduate students from the Masters degree program in Social Work at UNCG
  • Graduate students from the Masters degree program in Special Education at UNCG

Community Outreach

Another way in which the AD/HD Clinic fulfills its educational mission is through its in-service presentations to parent groups, medical and mental health professionals, and community agencies. Over the past 5 years AD/HD Clinic faculty, students, and staff have given more than 30 local, regional, and national presentations.

Agencies and groups interested in having us conduct an in-service presentation should contact the AD/HD Clinic (336-346-3192) for further information.
