Introductory remarks

Our CPA accredited graduate program in clinical child and adolescent psychology is based on the scientist-practitioner model. This model provides a balanced emphasis on science and practice such that our graduates have the training to become successful in multiple professional, research, and academic career paths. The PhD degree utilizes a range of instructional experiences including a developmental sequence of courses, independent research project(s) (doctoral dissertation), special-topics workshops and presentations, as well as hands-on clinical practice through practica within our training clinic, in community settings, and culminating in a one-year, full-time, clinical internship.
