Psychiatric Epidemiology

Dr. Striley is the Director of the UF Epidemiology Department’s Graduate Certificate in Psychiatric Epidemiology.  This Certificate is the only one of its type, allowing people from mental health or epidemiology backgrounds to receive additional training in psychiatric epidemiology, including its methods of research, assessments and measures, and important questions.  The 9 credit hour program can be completed completely off campus.  Graduates have gone on to contribute to the field as researchers, program developers, and have continued their education in fields such as clinical doctorates in psychology. 

Dr. Striley is also one of the developers of the DIS + SAM for the DSM-5.  This structured diagnostic assessment uses diagnostic algorithms to calculate the behavioral health diagnoses a respondent would qualify for.

Dr. Striley’s publications concern many different psychiatric epidemiological questions.  A few recent publications with doctoral students include:
