The Clinical Program Committee consists of the five core clinical faculty (Drs. Chambless, DeRubeis, Jaffee, Ruscio, and Waller), one member from a non-clinical area of the department (Dr. Lori Flanagan-Cato) and Dr. Melissa Hunt. Each year the clinical students elect a non-voting student representative to the committee as well.  Dr. DeRubeis is the Director of Clinical Training. Dr. Hunt serves as Associate Director of Clinical Training. The Associate Director is responsible for much of the day to day administration of the clinical training program. In this capacity, Dr. Hunt meets with all of the clinical students regularly, helps them obtain appropriate practicum placements and serves as a liaison between students and their off-site supervisors. The Clinical Program Committee as a whole oversees the clinical training program, and helps to ensure that policies of the program are consistent with broader departmental policies and goals. The program committee also bears responsibility for helping students complete the program when special circumstances arise, or when students encounter difficulties with any aspect of their doctoral training.
