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.

Breadth and depth of experiences: Two concentrated rotations and one extended rotation

Interns will be exposed to diverse clients, modalities and health care disciplines across three rotations during the residency year. Generalist training in assessment, intervention, supervision and research/program evaluation are included.

Interdisciplinary work: Highly valued role of psychology within teams

Interns work in interdisciplinary teams in all health and mental health rotations. Interns are highly valued team members who consult with other disciplines about clients, team dynamics, ethics and research/program evaluation activities.

Evidence-based practices: Learning and applying evidence-based practices

Assessment and treatment are based on evidence-based practices of psychological disorders and health conditions. This includes exposure to various therapeutic orientations and treatment modalities (e.g., individual, group).

Work-life balance: Transitioning from students to professional

Our program values the importance of balancing work and life commitments. Emphasis is placed on learning how to navigate new professional roles and duties while maintaining a fulfilling personal life outside of work.

Professional development: Developing your professional identity

Interns will have the opportunity to develop and foster their professional identity by participating in team-related and professional activities including supervision of supervision, program evaluation/research and committee work.

The ultimate goal is to prepare you for independent practice.
