Biography


Dr. Lopez does not plan to admit a new clinical doctoral student for Fall 2017.

Martita A. Lopez received her Ph.D. from Syracuse University in 1977 and completed her internship at the Yale University School of Medicine. She spent several years on the faculty at Virginia Tech and then joined the faculty at Rush Medical College, Rush University Medical Center, in Chicago. At Rush she served as Director of Clinical Training for the APA-accredited internship program. She also headed several hospital programs, specializing in adults with chronic illnesses, rehabilitation psychology, and geropsychology. She came to UT-Austin in 2001 as director of the Psychology Training Clinic and currently is also Director of Clinical Training. She was recently a co-investigator for an NIH-funded grant on the effectiveness of a CBT insomnia treatment program for older adults who have comorbid medical illness. Recent publications have been in the areas of psychology training, effectiveness of insomnia treatments, and geropsychology research methods and practice.
