Child Psychology Lab Looking for Undergrads

Savanah | October 27th, 2014

The Dissemination and Implementation Science Lab, directed by Dr. Amy Herschell in the Child Psychology department here at WVU, is looking to recruit some eager, enthusiastic undergraduate students who may be interested in becoming involved in the research that is done in the lab. The experience is great preparation for graduate or medical school.

Given the time commitment involved with training these students, a minimum of 2 semesters of involvement is expected, although many undergraduates find 3 or 4 semesters even more rewarding. The lab typically involves a commitment of 6-9 hours per week which includes a scheduled, weekly lab meeting.

Interested students should contact Brittany Liebsack (bkliebsack@mix.wvu.edu) and a brief interview will be set up. A psychology major/minor is not a requirement; students should simply have an interest in dissemination and implementation science.

London Theatre Tour is now open for enrollment! Led by Dr. Ryan Claycomb (English, Honors), the 3-credit course, plus 1-credit study abroad trip to London is open to all majors, all classes, and is eligible for Honors credit, but not restricted to Honors students. Check it out and spread the word!

During the semester, students read plays, discuss the relationship of the text to possible performances, to the city (and its history) in which they are being staged, and to the tourist industry that frames West End theatre. Then, over spring break, we fly to London for a week to see professional performances of the five plays read over the beginning of the semester.

The London Theatre Tour program application is now live on the WVU Study Abroad site, and you can begin applying. The link to the online brochure that contains the application is here: https://studyabroad.wvu.edu/sites/?go=LondonTheatreTour

For a quick clarification, London Theatre Tour is both a three-credit spring 2015 course (ENGL339) with a one–credit spring break study abroad to London. You cannot do one without the other.

The course cost is $4000. Please contact Dr. Claycomb if you are interested, or if you have questions, by emailing ryan.claycomb@mail.wvu.edu.

Professor Steve Davis will be offering CHPR 440, Clinical Research Methods and Practice, during the Spring Semester 2015. This course offers a unique, “hands on” experience in a busy academic emergency department (ED) and urgent care center where many public health issues and problems, such as substance abuse, diabetes, and intimate partner violence, are often encountered. In addition to a didactic component covering various topics including research ethics, research design, and database considerations, students will have the opportunity to enroll patients in various research studies and administer data collection instruments. Interested students should plan to meet briefly with Professor Davis prior to enrollment to discuss specific course requirements. This course is especially of interest to students interested in pursuing a medical or health related career. The experiences gained in this course can help differentiate students from other applicants during the medical school (or other health profession) application process. Professor Davis has had several Honors College students complete the course in the past and would welcome many more!

If you have further questions, or to schedule an appointment to discuss course enrollment, please kindly contact him at your convenience at:
