Student Volunteer Research Opportunities

The UMass Psychotic Disorders Research Program accepts highly motivated students and trainees at all levels who are interested in gaining clinical and research experience in patients with mental illness. We have multiple ongoing pharmacological or psychosocial clinical trials at any given time. The goal of our research studies is to develop innovative intervention strategies to treat schizophrenia symptoms, comorbid cardiometabolic problems and co-occurring substance use, and ultimately to improve the quality of life in this patient population. There are several opportunities for students to volunteer and learn at our program over the summer or on a part-time basis during the school year. Volunteers will assist with a variety of tasks including data management, analysis and presentation, and literature review. In addition, interested students can also help with ongoing clinical trials.

  • Students interested to pursue a medical degree or health related graduate degree are preferred.
