Training at Marcus Autism Center

The training office at Marcus Autism Center develops and supports local, state, regional, national and international activities that translate and disseminate knowledge derived from the other primary mission-related domains of the center (research and clinical services) through innovative and effective modes of instruction. 

Marcus Autism Center is committed to training current and future generations of researchers, clinicians, and other professionals who may interact with individuals who live on the autism spectrum. Training activities are sponsored throughout Georgia and beyond, including brief observations, practica, scholarly preceptorships, internships and fellowships, as well as public lectures, grand rounds, and continuing education workshops and symposia. The center enjoys strong connections with other training and education entities in the region and around the U.S.

Training activities are reviewed in an advisory capacity by the training council, which includes professional members from within the center, as well as training and education leaders in the community. More information about training may be explored through the links below.
