Undergraduate students are valuable members of the Women’s Mental Health Research team and they play an important role in the implementation of our research studies. Students who have volunteered in the Women’s Mental Health Research Program have cited it as a highlight of their undergraduate career.


Undergraduate Research Assistants (URAs) are required to commit to working in the lab for a minimum of 10 hours per week over 2 years. In return for this commitment, Undergraduate Research Assistants (URAs) are eligible for course credit and may design their own research project, with guidance from Women’s Mental Health Research faculty and staff, during their senior year. For a list of some of our previous students’ independent research and/or Honors Capstone projects, click here.


URAs complete Initial Investigator and Human Subjects Protection HIPAA training as well as Bloodborne Pathogen Training. Depending on their level of involvement, URAs may receive additional training in neurocognitive testing and Structured Clinical Interview for DSM Disorders (SCID).
