Clinical Psychology

Originating in 1963, the University of Waterloo’s Canadian Psychological Association (CPA)-accredited Clinical Psychology Ph.D. Training Program was developed to educate scientist-practitioners in the fashion recommended by the Boulder Model. From the start, we aspired to the highest levels of skill development in both research and clinical practice, so that our graduates would achieve leadership roles in academic and applied psychology settings. Over the last three decades, consistently about one-third of our graduates have taken academic appointments and continue in a major role as researchers and scholars, and many of the remaining two-thirds, who go into clinical practice, have assumed important positions as chief psychologists, leaders of large consultation practices, directors of internship training programs, officers of professional societies, and the like.
