The clinical psychology doctoral (PsyD) program at Widener prepares students as both scholars and practitioners. Not only are students taught the science of psychology by expert faculty, they are also challenged to use this knowledge to develop practical clinical applications in areas such as: Applied psychology Intervention Psychological assessment Consultation and education Management and supervision Program evaluation In addition to classroom exposure, these skills are obtained during three years of practicum placement and two half-time paid years of internship rotations. Our students are able to gain experience in a variety of settings (e.g., inpatient, assessment, child, adult, outpatient) via placement during each year of training. Students also complete a rigorous research dissertation to further their expertise in the field of clinical psychology. But more importantly, PsyD graduates are taught a broader concept of leadership in the context of psychology, which will help turn their passions into something that will have a lasting impact on the field.
