Clinical Psychology Graduate Training Program

The APA-accredited graduate training program in clinical psychology at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) offers doctoral education and training in the science and practice of clinical psychology. Our program follows a scientist-practitioner model. We prepare students to integrate the science and practice of clinical psychology, to be effective teachers, and to provide empirically-supported treatments in a variety of settings. Students conduct research projects throughout their time in the program, working closely with faculty mentors. Our graduate training also includes teaching opportunities and supervised clinical experience at a wide variety of placement sites throughout northeast Ohio. We are proud of our training program and are happy to help answer any questions that you might have. Arin Connell, Ph.D. (Director of Clinical Training)
