Professional Opportunities





The Mary A. Rackham Institute offers professional training in Clinical Psychology, Social Work, and Speech-Language Pathology. We periodically offer workshops for professionals who are seeking further training in mental health treatments. We have several ongoing opportunities for students, as well as GRSA positions available to work with faculty.

Our commitment to high quality professional training has been unwavering since the inception of the Institute, more than 75 years ago.

Graduate Research with Faculty
