The University of Washington Psychology Internship program has several awards that we present to 4 of our residents each year.
The Joseph Becker, Ph.D. Award for Outstanding Research Achievement
This award was established in recognition of the significant contributions of Dr. Joseph Becker to the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and to the Psychology Internship Program.
The establishment of this award honors Dr. Becker’s vision of a scientist-practitioner internship and his long-term presence as a model of the principles this embodies. The award further acknowledges his nationally recognized stature as a clinician-researcher, and as a strong, compassionate teacher and leader. In keeping with Dr. Becker’s vision, the purpose of this award is to stimulate quality research by rewarding an intern for independence, creativity and intellectual depth in a research effort of the internship year.
