Graduate Programs

The following graduate programs are housed within NSU's Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine Department of Couple and Family Therapy. NSU-KPCOM's Department of Couple and Family Therapy is dedicated to teaching and training its students to work with culturally and sexually diverse populations. To that end, our department prioritizes recruiting diverse faculty, supervisors, staff, and students so as to create an inclusive environment which empowers our students to become authentic and culturally aware practitioners who practice from an affirmative lens and who celebrate differences. We look for faculty, supervisors, staff and students who are self-reflective and open to challenging their own perceptions of social location and who advocate for social justice.
