The School of Psychology Centre for Health Outcomes, Innovation and Clinical Education (CHOICE) was established in 2013 to strengthen the research functions of the UQ Psychology Clinic.

CHOICE provides a platform for collaborative research between academics, clinicians and students working and training in the field of clinical psychology.

CHOICE provides support for research projects and dissemination of clinical outcomes. Members of the Centre frequently collaborate on projects with both public and private sector organisations. Experts in the Centre are available for consultation about clinical research matters.

The objectives of CHOICE include:

  1. To develop the disciplines of clinical and applied psychology by conducting high-quality basic and applied programs of research that provide a link between clinical theory and practice.
  2. To provide clinical and applied postgraduate students with high-quality research opportunities to further their training.
  3. To strengthen links from the clinical and applied programs of the School with industry and the professions through engaging in collaborative research ventures with government, NGO, industry, and community partners.
