APA offers Advanced Training Institutes for summer 2013

The American Psychological Association (APA) will sponsor four Advanced Training Institutes (ATIs) in the summer of 2013. These intensive training programs are hosted at research institutions across the country. They expose advanced graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, new and established faculty, and other researchers to state-of-the-art research methods and emerging technologies. Participants also have the opportunity to meet other scientists with related interests.

The four ATIs are listed below. Complete information about these programs can be viewed on the Advanced Training Institutes website.

APA chose to sponsor these particular ATIs in response to continued interest among researchers. When offered previously, these ATIs drew substantial numbers of participants and received highly positive ratings.  

The ATIs on Structural Equation Modeling and Exploratory Data Mining will be held at UC Davis in consecutive weeks. In order to help make it feasible for people to attend both of these ATIs, participants who are accepted and register for both sessions will receive a 20 percent discount on their tuition for each institute. 

Tuition for each ATI ranges from $300 to $1200, with students, post-docs and APA members paying lower tuitions. Participants may also apply for financial assistance.

APA arranges for group rates at on-campus or nearby lodgings and encourages all ATI participants to stay at the same location. Prices for accommodations have been negotiated at competitive group rates. For the UC Davis and Michigan State ATIs, the institutes will be held in the same conference hotel as the group lodging. The Cincinnati ATI will be held on-campus and participants will have the option to stay in very economically priced on-campus housing.

The APA Science Directorate also maintains a list of training opportunities for psychological scientists that are offered outside of APA. This list is updated throughout the year. Suggestions for additional programs to include on the list can be sent by email.

Note that ATI application deadlines begin in March. Applications are available at the Advanced Training Institute website and must be submitted electronically through each institute’s webpage. For more information, contact ATI or (202) 336-6000.
