He then completed a Ph.D. at the University of Buffalo in 1983 with a clinical internship at the University of Rochester Medical Center. At the time, conceptualizations of schizophrenia and mood disorders were changing, with the boundaries of the former narrowing and the latter broadening. Klein’s interests shifted in accord with this. In graduate school, Klein worked with Dr. Michael L. Raulin on abnormalities in speech and language in individuals with schizotypal traits, with Dr. Richard A. Depue on bipolar spectrum disorders, and did independent research on the boundary between schizophrenia and mood disorders. His doctoral thesis, with Depue, focused on the...
