The Department of Clinical and Health Psychology offers postdoctoral training in clinical psychology to individuals who have completed a doctoral degree in clinical, school, or counseling psychology from a program accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) or the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA), as well as an APA or CPA accredited internship in clinical psychology. We seek to prepare postdoctoral fellows for the practice of professional psychology consistent with the philosophy embodied in the scientist-practitioner model of training. We endeavor to teach postdoctoral fellows:

1. how to think scientifically about clinical problems,

2. how to provide clinical service with skill and appreciation for human diversity and the highest ethical and professional standards,

3. how to evaluate the quality and clinical relevance of empirical research, and

4. how to contribute to advancements in psychological knowledge through research and scholarship.
