Abstract : This program was designed to provide multidisciplinary research training in biopsychosocial aspects of breast cancer in the context of predoctoral training in Clinical Health Psychology leading to the terminal degree of Ph.D.. This program provides multidisciplinary research training in biopsychosocial aspects of breast cancer. Training is closely coordinated with ongoing research projects in breast cancer being conducted by Training Program faculty. The Training Program makes use of the faculty, resources, and experiences that are readily available at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center (SCCC). Trainees are graduate students in Psychology (Health Psychology/Behavioral Medicine). In sum, we continue to be in a unique position to provide rich training in psycho-oncology and breast cancer.
