Clinical/Developmental Program PhD Requirements

Students in the joint Clinical/Developmental Program complete requirements of both the Clinical and Developmental Programs. Because requirements for the two programs are complementary, there is no net increase in required coursework for students in the joint training program.

All the advisory and examination committees for students in the joint training program include both clinical and developmental faculty. Training in the Clinical/Developmental Program is fully APA accredited. Like all clinical students, those in the joint training program must complete a one-year clinical internship at an APA accredited setting.
