About Clinical Psychology

The University of Wyoming's Clinical Psychology Doctoral (Ph.D.) program is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association*. The five-year program consists of four academic years and a 12-month pre-doctoral internship. Our clinical training follows the scientist-practitioner model. We emphasize training students as psychological scientists who critically evaluate research literature and approach therapy and assessment from a scientifically valid framework.

Although there are many careers available to clinical psychologists, all require adequate research knowledge. Research knowledge includes expertise in research methodology, design, statistics, and the ability to carry out an independent study; a broad familiarity with psychological science and the research related to areas of study in the program, such as psychopathology, psychotherapy, and individual areas of interest; the ability to evaluate research literature; and the ability to use the existing research literature to inform clinical activities. Students will learn to apply theory and technique from in the classroom research and clinical work conducted under faculty supervision.

Our clinical faculty have expertise in empirically supported assessment and intervention methods. We have active research programs on depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorders, childhood externalizing disorders, serious mental illness, and community based health promotion.

Students emerge from our program with strong clinical skills applicable to a wide variety of settings. As scientist-practitioners, our graduates have research and clinical skills that are valuable in pursuing postdoctoral research fellowships and faculty positions.
