I have all good things to say about my past undergraduate experience at Adelphi. Not only was my clinical interest reinforced by many professors, but I also got heavily involved in psychological research due to my mentor’s influence, Dr. Michael Moore. I would not be in Adelphi’s Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program today if it were not for the program’s amazing support, structure and opportunities.
