Welcome

What is Clinical Psychology?

Clinical psychology is a broad field of practice and research within the discipline of psychology, which applies psychological principles to the assessment, prevention, amelioration, and rehabilitation of psychological disorders, disability, dysfunctional behaviour, and health-risk behaviour, and to the enhancement of psychological and physical well-being.  Clinical psychology includes both scientific research, focusing on the search for general principles, and clinical service, focusing on the study and care of patients, and information gathered from each of these activities influences practice and research.  For more information see Definition of Clinical Psychology.

Program Summary

The Graduate Program in Clinical Psychology at the University of Saskatchewan was established in 1971 and has graduated 125 PhD clinical psychologists.  The program follows the scientist-practioner model and has strengths in forensic psychology, personality psychology, clinical neuropsychology, health psychology, and interpersonal, psychodynamic, and cognitive-behavioural psychotherapy.  There are currently about 40 students in the program progressing towards their PhD. (including those on internship).  The clinical psychology program admits about 5-6 students per year from a pool of about 50-60 applicants.

Students in the clinical psychology program complete four years of course work.  During their first summer students complete a summer clerkship.  For the remaining three years students complete six terms of one day a week practicum at various health and mental health settings.  In addition to course work, a clerkship, and practicum students are also engaged in research and complete comprehensive examinations.  Finally, students complete a twelve month internship at an accredited internship program to complete their training.  There are currently 6.5 core clinical faculty in the department of psychology and about 30 part-time, adjunct, and professional affiliate faculty. The Department of Psychology also has a very close working relation with the psychology faculty at St. Thomas Moore College.  See here for information on the clinical psychology program's accreditation.

The Canadian Psychological Association requires specific information about the program to be publicly disclosed. Much of this information is found throughout the webpage. However, all of it can be found in these four tables.

About Clinical Psychology

Philosophy and Model of Training

The program follows the scientist-practitioner model which has been the predominant model of training in North American clinical psychology since the late 1940s. This model places approximately equal emphasis on development of research skills and clinical skills. In this model, trainees are required to carry out independent research for their doctoral dissertation; to meet requirements for breadth of scholarly knowledge; and to complete about 3,000 hours of supervised clinical experience before graduation (including a full-year, accredited internship).

Programs of Study

Curriculum

The Clinical Psychology Program offers students the opportunity for professional development and the integration of science with practice through course work, practica, research, and the predoctoral internship. Students also participate in activities such as departmental colloquia, clinical program workshops, case seminars, and complete comprehensive examinations in the area of clinical assessment and treatment, and ethics.

The curriculum balances broad training in research methods and core content areas with opportunities for concentration in areas such as personality, psychopathology, clinical neuropsychology, health psychology, child psychology, and qualitative methods.    In each of these areas we encourage students to think critically about current research and practice and to contribute to scientific dialogue through publications, conference presentations, and other formats of professional exchange. Most of students' research training, and much of their clinical training, is grounded in mentorship experiences tailored to each student's career goals and stage of professional development.  Although we are a generalist program there is opportunity to focus your clinical and research area based on clinical and research supervisor specialization. More information relating to the program and curriculum can be found in the policy page (especially under the heading tranafer and progress).

CPA requires certain information about training outcomes (e.g., years to completion, program costs) to be provided to applicants. Information is provided on this information page

Qualified Canadian applicants are given preference over non-Canadian applicants.

Admitted applicants generally have a mean average mark (over the previous 2 years of study) of 83-88%, have completed an honours degree, and are Canadian citizens. Few students with averages under 82% have been admitted, but there is no specific cutoff.   

There is no specific cutoff score on the Graduate Record Exams; a strong record in other areas may make up for weaknesses in these test scores, or vice versa.  However, applicants with all GRE scores above the 60th percentile do have a better chance of admission. 

In the next year or two, provincial legislation may be introduced that will require our program to make admission conditional on passing a police check which would be required for any clinical practicum placement.  This is not yet required.

Licensing

Registration or licensing

The Graduate Program in Clinical Psychology is designed to prepare graduates for full, independent registration or licensing in professional psychology following a postdoctoral year of supervised experience.

As of 2003, five provinces outside Saskatchewan (MB, ON, NS, PE, NF, NB), and most US jurisdictions, require a post-doctoral year of supervised experience for licensing for independent practice.  

Provincial and territorial registration/licensing requirements for Canadian jurisdictions, and links to the regulatory organizations, are provided by the Canadian Psychological Association here.  Information about licensing requirements for all US and Canadian jurisdictions can be also obtained free online from the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards.

As of February 2006, the policy of the Saskatchewan College of Psychologists is that the full-year predoctoral internship, if accredited by CPA or APA, may be counted by PhD graduates as supervised experience towards registration.  Other provinces and states may require a year of post-doctoral supervised experience in addition to the internship.
