This is a Research based Program.

A PhD is the minimum educational requirement to become registered or licensed to practice as an independent clinical psychologist in most jurisdictions in North America. Students who are most successful in clinical programs are academic high-achievers with strong interest in the science of human behaviour, well-developed interpersonal skills, and the desire to help improve the lives of others through careers in research and professional practice.

On admission, students spend 6 to 7 years taking courses, conducting research for their MA thesis and PhD dissertation, accruing supervised clinical experience in a variety of practicum settings, and completing a one-year full-time internship in an accredited clinical setting.
