Clinical Psychology Programs in Texas

September 20, 2016


The Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology at UT Southwestern Medical Center is an American Psychological Association-accredited training program that prepares skilled psychologists to serve as clinicians as well as researchers. The Program includes an affiliated, and separately APA-accredited, predoctoral internship in clinical psychology.

The Doctoral Program’s basic training philosophy reflects a clinician-researcher model of training that prepares individuals for the practice of clinical psychology, broadly conceived. The combined experience of clinical and research settings reflects the Program’s clinician-researcher philosophy. The Clinical Psychology Program’s model provides research training that equips students pursuing more clinically oriented careers with the skills to critically evaluate scientific material. Students pursuing academic or research careers have a solid clinical foundation to build on.

Thank you for your interest in the UT Southwestern Medical Center Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program. Our graduate program includes an affiliated Predoctoral Internship Program. Both programs are separately accredited by the American Psychological Association.

I want to highlight the unique aspects of our training programs. Because we are located in a medical university center, we provide a wide variety of both clinical and research experiences, with access to diverse psychiatric and medical populations. In addition to the large on-campus faculty, we have an extensive volunteer faculty in the community who provide training and supervision of our graduate students and predoctoral interns.

We provide specialty training in health psychology/behavioral medicine, neuropsychology, child psychology (child health psychology, child neuropsychology, and specialty training in eating disorders and autism), and general clinical psychology.
