|About The Program
Fordham has been successfully training clinical psychologists for more than half a century. Our "Boulder" model scientist-practitioner program prepares students for practice, research, and teaching in clinical psychology. The department intentionally maintains a theoretically diverse faculty and admits students whose theoretical orientations are equally diverse. The clinical and research training provided are correspondingly diverse in theoretical orientation.
About the Program
Our aim is to broadly prepare students for multiple careers in psychology. The department endorses empirically supported treatments as detailed at the following web site:
Society of Clinical Psychology: Division 12 of the American Psychological Association
Students are admitted to the Clinical Program within the Psychology Department rather than to a faculty member's lab. However, students interested in working with a particular faculty member are strongly encouraged to indicate this interest in their admission materials, as the vast majority of students enter the program with a clearly identified mentor. However, the Clinical Program also admits students who do not declare which faculty member would be their academic and/or research advisor as part of the admissions process. These students are free to select the faculty members most able to direct the research interest they cultivate during their first year. Students are free to work with another faculty member on their doctoral dissertation should their research interests change during their time in the program.
