This model of training is recognized by the American Psychological Association as appropriate for the preparation of clinical psychology practitioners. Skills in assessment, diagnosis, and treatment are developed for application in a wide range of clinical settings. Students complete three years of full-time course work and a one-year, full-time internship or a two-year, half-time internship. Graduates, following completion of postdoctoral clinical training, are eligible to be examined for licensure as psychologists throughout the country.
