About

The Psychology (Clinical Psychology: Applied Developmental Emphasis) program of University of Guelph is training graduate students for work as clinical psychologists.

Overview

Key facts

The Psychology (Clinical Psychology: Applied Developmental Emphasis) program of University of Guelph follows a scientist-practitioner model in which an integrated series of courses and practica at the Master’s and Doctoral levels collectively contributes to the acquisition of competence as both clinicians and researchers.
