Graduate Studies in Clinical Psychology


General information and program requirements - Doctorate in Philosophy Psychology | Handbook

The clinical PhD program is a CPA-accredited scientist-practitioner program designed to train students in both research and clinical skills that can lead to a broad range of employment possibilities. Through practica, students learn about clinical work with children, adolescents, families, adults and couples, as well as about program evaluation and consultation with community agencies. Research skills are taught through an apprenticeship model with thesis supervisors, who may be full-time professors in clinical or experimental psychology, cross-appointed professors in other university departments, or adjunct or clinical professors working in hospitals or other community agencies.

The admission application must be received no later than December 15th, and the file must be complete with all required documents at the latest January 8th.
