    Dr Meegan Kilcullen

    Senior Lecturer, Master of Psychology (Clinical)

    We train clinicians to think critically, to be creative and flexible, and to be adaptive to any clinical environment, particularly in the tropics. We are dedicated to supporting students to become clinical psychologists who are self-reflexive and culturally responsive in their practice.
