Program sequence: Research and Clinical Training Option

The clinical profile is a 5-6 year sequence. In the first year, students with B.A. or B.Sc. degrees enter the Diploma in Clinical Psychology and the MA in Psychology. They conduct their master's thesis research, participate in research meetings in their area of specialization, and take courses in statistics/research design, psychological theory, psychopathology, and assessment. During the second year, students take courses in cognitive, behavioural, and other empirically supported treatments, receive practicum training in assessment and psychotherapy in the APC and, typically in the second summer, complete a full-time extramural clinical practicum. At the Ph.D. level, students also conduct their dissertation research, take advanced clinical and research seminars, participate in additional therapy practica, and write their Ph.D. comprehensive examinations. In the final year, students undertake a full-time, predoctoral internship (or two years half-time). Recent students have completed internships at a variety of mental health facilities across Canada and the United States.
