Program Mission: In 2007, the University of Nebraska Medical Center's (UNMC's) Munroe-Meyer Institute (MMI) developed a Ph.D. program aimed at providing students with independent study, investigation, and research skills in applied behavior analysis to prepare them for prominent leadership positions in academic, clinical, and research arenas. UNMC's doctoral program focuses on applied behavior analysis for children, adolescents, and families. The training model for our program is similar to other programs that train researchers and scientists, in which principles and concepts introduced in the classroom are immediately applied in clinical and research settings. MMI faculty teach the core courses and supervise students' clinical and research experiences. This unique program is the first of its kind in the state of Nebraska and the first in the nation to be integrated with a University Center of Excellence on Developmental Disabilities.
This program includes an ABAI Verified Course Sequence for BACB examination applications.
