Education for Service: Tanzania 2009

Children in Tanzania
In December 2009, ten Doctor of Physical Therapy students and two faculty members (Renee VanVeld and Stacie Fruth) from the Krannert School of Physical Therapy at the University of Indianapolis will be participating in a service-learning trip to provide medical and educational services to the underserved population of Pommern, Tanzania. The goal is for the participating DPT students to return to the U. S. with a renewed enthusiasm for service, increased creativity for solving problems with few resources, a heightened appreciation for cultural differences, and a newfound appreciation for medical resources in the U. S.

The 2009 trip to Tanzania will incorporate a formal qualitative research study involving students on campus as well as those traveling abroad. DPT students traveling to Africa will apply skills learned in the classroom when they are performing physical therapy services including the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, integumentary and cardiopulmonary conditions. In addition, students will assist in the rudimentary medical clinic with conditions including malaria, tooth extractions and intestinal worms. Students will conduct well-baby clinics for mothers who travel great distances in order to have their children weighed and vaccinated in order to reverse striking national statistics of infant mortality and malnutrition. Students will also have the opportunity to teach in a local school, assist with local construction projects and participate in cultural sharing.

A qualitative research study is being conducted on the students who are traveling to Tanzania to determine what changes may occur with regards to cultural understanding and appreciation, the level of interest in international service, resource management and personal struggles encountered. Data for the study will be gathered one month before departure, immediately upon returning, six months and one year post trip by students in the Class of 2012 by means of interviews and journal reviews. The students collecting the data will then be studied to determine whether or not participation in the study increases a desire to participate in future studies in international health.

Participating in this project will catapult theses students into a journey focused on international health. KSPT students participating in this experience will take away in experience more than they could ever give to the people of Tanzania. According to Assistant Professor and trip organizer Stacie Fruth, "myself and others I know who have been on similar trips know that, upon returning home, you definitely feel like you received far more than you gave. I guess I can't say that's my goal for these students, but I do hope it happens."

What documents are most important when applying for the master's or doctoral program in psychology?


Unlike many schools that use a multiple regression form of application processing, the School of Psychological Sciences at the University of Indianapolis considers every document in the application dossier to be of equal importance.  While high GRE scores are a good indicator of the potential for success in a demanding graduate program such as ours, you will not be eliminated from consideration just because you did not score above 600.  Your undergraduate grade point average, especially grades received in psychology courses, can also help us determine your potential to succeed.  However, just because your gpa was not 4.0 does not mean you will be rejected.  We also look at what scholarly activities you have participated in and what types of volunteer or work-related activities you have that show your interest in the field of psychology.  Your letters of recommendation also tell the reviewers a lot about the kind of student you have been or how other professionals in the field view your potential.  And don't gloss over the importance of your personal statement.  A very well-written personal statement will reflect well on your past training and potential.  In short, every document in your application dossier is important and considered equally when the admission committee for the School of Psychological Sciences at the University of Indianapolis considers your application.

Can I transfer credits from another school for the psychology masters or doctoral program?

Yes, you can!  Up to 15 hours of equivalent graduate coursework can be transferred for either the psychology doctoral program or the psychology master's programs.  Because of APA requirements the transferred courses must be equivalent to courses offered in the UIndy curriculum.  You must have attained a grade of B or better for the transfer credit to be considered.  Also, any transferred coursework must have been completed within the past 5 years.  You must petition for transfer credit and supply a detailed course syllabus and academic transcript.  There are specific deadlines that must be adhered to for your petition to be considered.  In certain limited situations more than 15 credit hours of transfer credit may be considered.  Please contact the Director of Graduate Programs at ddowning@uindy.edu or the Director of Student Services at keatonma@uindy.edu if you have specific questions.

How soon can I earn my doctorate in clinical psychology?

There are several options for completion of the doctoral program in clinical psychology at the University of Indianapolis.  Your unique circumstances will determine which program you choose.  The fastest route to the doctorate degree in clinical psychology and the minimum length of time allowed by state law licensing requirements is the 3 + 1 program.  This program gives you three years of coursework and one year of internship and is most popular with students entering the doctoral program with a master's degree in clinical psychology.  The 4 + 1 program is the most commonly selected program.  The 4 + 1 program allows you to complete a master's degree along with the doctorate, gives you time to complete your dissertation prior to going on internship and gives you the option to add extra practicum hours to your resume.  The master's degree, the completed dissertation and the extra practicum will give you a definite advantage when it comes to internship time.  There is also a 5 + 1 program for anyone who needs a less intense course load for completing their degree.  Once you begin your program you will have plenty of opportunity to discuss these options with your advisor.

Testing required!

Hate standardized tests?  Sorry, but there is no way out of the GRE requirement for admission to the School of Psychological Sciences doctoral or master's programs.  And you need to score well to be competitive with the majority of our applicants.
 
Took the GRE, but it was long ago?  Sorry, but if it was more that five years ago you will have to do it again. 
 
What score must I get?  If you scored below 500 on any part, you really need to do some more studying and try to improve your scores.  Our average scores for the incoming class of 2008 were 600 for the doctoral (PsyD) program and 520 for the psychology master's programs on the verbal, quantitative and psychology subject sections of the GRE.  You don't have to take the GRE Psychology Subject test, but scoring well can give you an advantage over someone who did not take the test or someone who did not do too well.  If you don't score well, it will not count against you, so just DO IT!
