Psychopharmacology program thrive during COVID-19

LAS CRUCES – The clinical psychopharmacology program at New Mexico State University is a unique program with students from across North America and the world, attracting practicing psychologists looking to obtain training and a master’s degree in clinical psychopharmacology.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the hybrid program faced challenges early on that have since been overcome with the help of partnerships both on campus and with St. Ambrose University in Iowa.

“The needs of our students are being met while following stringent pandemic controls,” said Casey McDougall, training director of the NMSU clinical psychopharmacology program. “We’ve allowed students access to our staff and facilities, and with the help of St. Ambrose University, students from out of state can still continue on with our program.”

The clinical psychopharmacology program, housed in the NMSU College of Education, is the only post-doctoral program the university offers. It is also one of the few American Psychology Association-designated training and education programs among clinical psychopharmacology programs offered in the U.S.
