“As a CDLP recipient in 2017, I had the fortunate opportunity to be mentored by Darin Dougherty, MD. I participated in the CDLP during my final year of graduate training in clinical psychology at the University of Tulsa. I gained an enormous amount of knowledge as a result of my involvement related to grantsmanship, as well as feedback on my line of research, including specific guidance on developing a project to be submitted for a training grant. An invaluable aspect of the CDLP was the opportunity to network with experts, research and clinically focused, across numerous fields, including those within my own field of research. Being a CDLP recipient made me an even more competitive candidate for fellowship opportunities, and ultimately an independent researcher. Presently, I am completing my clinical residency at the Durham VA Health Care System receiving advanced clinical training in treatment of veteran populations. I have recently accepted a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Brain Imaging and Analysis Center at Duke University in the Department of Psychiatry. I hope to continue my research investigating the intersecting relationship of combat exposure, physical and neurological health in veteran populations. “

I participated in the CDLP in 2017, on the Clinical Research track, and my mentor was Alicia Meuret, PhD. Participating in CDLP was a wonderful opportunity on multiple fronts. I was able to meet and network with incredible up-and-coming clinical researchers as well as leaders in the intervention science field (including some of my scientific heroes!), leading to new colleagues, research ideas, and even collaborations. Through CDLP seminars, I gained actionable insight into funding opportunities available to early-career researchers, which has shaped my plans for developing a research program. Presenting an early-stage research project to Dr. Meuret and others in my mentorship group helped me solidify a new project plan, which I am now developing into a grant proposal. Since participating in the CDLP, I began my Predoctoral Internship in Clinical Psychology at Yale School of Medicine, and I recently accepted a tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor of Psychology (Clinical Area) at Stony Brook University, which I will begin in September 2018. I will strongly encourage my future students and early-career colleagues to consider the CDLP; I am very grateful to have been part of the program!

National Register Health Service Psychologist
Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia
Provincial OCD Program, B.C. Children's Hospital

I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Provincial OCD Program in Vancouver, Canada, where I participate in numerous aspects of research, including neurocognitive and academic functioning and treatment outcome in OCD. I was part of the CDLP in 2017 and my mentor was Norah Feeney. CDLP helped me connect with other clinicians and researchers who lived in different parts of the world and also worked with children and youth with anxiety disorders and OCD. Thanks to CDLP, in January 2018 I visited the OCD Program in Brazil where I met other researchers and mental health professionals who have been working on similar research projects and with whom I could potentially collaborate in the near future.
