The Student Council is excited to announce that we have finalized our program for the upcoming 2015 APA Convention in Toronto! We designed our program to meet student needs and would love to see every student affiliate at both our symposium and networking events:

Internship Prep Workshop for Rehabilitation, Health, and Neuropsychology Students
The Student Council, along with Division 22 (Rehabilitation Psychology) and Division 40 (Neuropsychology), will be hosting this collaborative symposium. The workshop will include a brief introductory presentation to provide students with advice regarding the internship match process. Attendees will then choose 4-6 small groups, which they attend for approximately 20 minutes each. Examples of small group topics include Q&A sessions focused on health psychology, mock interviewing, CV content and formatting advice, and peer mentorship with postdoctoral fellows. Drs. Lori Waxenberg and Justin Nash will be representing Division 38. Please plan to attend!
Date: Sunday, August 9th
Time: 8-8:50am
Location: Convention Center Constitution Hall

Training Directors Meet and Greet
This networking event gives students the opportunity to meet with health psychology internship and post-doctoral training directors. Refreshments will be provided!
Date: Friday, August 7th
Time: 6-6:50pm
Location: Royal York Hotel Toronto Room

Campus Representative Program
This August will be the first year anniversary of our Campus Representative Program. We started the Campus Representative Program to increase inclusion and engagement of students across graduate programs that have a focus in health psychology, and we believe that it has been a successful first year. We currently have campus representatives for over 40 universities, and 21 of these representatives hosted events at their respective universities!!

To learn more about this program, find your campus representative, and/or apply to become the campus representative for your program, please go to:

Student Newsletter
This Spring, our Division 38 Communications Committee created our first-ever Student Newsletter. We are very excited about this newsletter and hope that it will help keep students engaged and informed regarding Division 38 matters.

If you are a student who has a campus representative at your program, you should have received this newsletter from your campus representative around the beginning of April. Additionally, I posted the Student Newsletter on the Division 38 Student Listserv (DIV38STU@LISTS.APA.ORG). Please contact the student rep e-mail (at or your campus representative if you did not receive the newsletter and would like a copy of it. 

Stay Connected: Be sure to like Division 38 on Facebook ( and follow us on Twitter (@APADivision38).
