Clinical Psychology Residency Program

This 1,800 hour, 12-month Residency program will appeal to interns wanting comprehensive training at the pre-doctoral level in a scientist-practitioner atmosphere, with the expectation for training toward independent practice or academic clinical psychology.

In our view, independent practice requires not only extensive knowledge of psychological assessment, intervention, consultation, and knowledge of pertinent ethics and professional issues, but also a broad view of the health care system and complementary community-based services.

At present there are two positions available. As this Residency program offers opportunities to learn in several settings, it provides a wide variety of training in both traditional mental health assessment and treatment, as well as in neuropsychology, health, and rehabilitation psychology.

At all sites interns will participate actively as members of interdisciplinary teams. In consultation with faculty, each intern will choose two concentrated (6 months, 3 days/week) rotations and one extended rotation (12 months, 1.5 days/week), dependent upon his or her interests, previous experience, and the availability of supervision.
