Prospective Graduate Students

Dr. Hewitt accepts graduate students in either the Clinical Psychology Program or the Social/Personality Program at UBC.

Potential graduate students interested in working in the Perfectionism and Psychotherapy Lab should have a strong interest in research and, if the student is applying to the clinical program, a strong interest in clinical work. Most successful applicants have had undergraduate research experience, such as authorship on papers, presentations at conferences, or volunteer experience in research laboratories. For prospective clinical psychology graduate students, experience in the clinical domain of some sort is also important.
