Additional Information and Data about the Chicago Campus’ Accredited Clinical Psy.D. Program

The Clinical Psychology doctoral program (Psy. D.) at the Chicago Campus has been accredited by the American Psychological Association since 1987.

A signature initiative of the program is its unique first-year course, “Research Clerkship.” This year-long course matches incoming students with core faculty members who serve as research & scholarship mentors as they work together throughout the year on research and scholarship projects. This experience provides important preparation for later work on dissertation. For many students it also leads to opportunities for poster and conference presentations and publications.
