Clinical Internships
Clinical psychology doctoral students typically apply for pre-doctoral internships in their fourth or fifth year of the program after having successfully defended their dissertation proposal. Working closely with the Director of Clinical Training, students identify and apply to approximately 15 internship sites. All sites that students apply to are required to have APA-approved internship programs.

The rigor of our program and the richness of the clinical training experiences offered via externship placements provide our students with excellent preparation for the internship application process. Fordham CPDP students perform exceptionally well in this regard, and nearly all students who apply from our program are matched to APA-approved internships (Match rate since 2007 = 86% - 91%). Further, given the specializations available in the Fordham CPDP program, many students are able to obtain specialized internship placements in forensic psychology, health and neuropsychology, or child and family clinical psychology.
