Palo Alto University: Ph.D. Clinical Psychology Program
The purpose of the Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program is to train students as competent researchers and clinicians. Students are taught to be science minded while appreciating the larger role of psychology in alleviating suffering in the world. This balance includes learning to value evidence-based clinical models while maintaining the responsibilities psychologists have to their community, society, and profession. An outstanding faculty of clinicians and researchers provides rigorous classroom instruction, clinical supervision, and research mentoring to help students find the right balance for them. Working within a training model best described as “practitioner-scientist,” students systematically move through five years of coursework and practica to acquire Ph.D.-level competence and capability in areas of psychological theory, research, and practice. The Ph.D. Clinical Psychology program is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA).
Forensic Psychology is the application of the science and profession of psychology to issues relating to law and the legal system. The clinical application of psychology to the legal system requires broad and general training in clinical psychology, with specific forensic training in addition to that clinical training. https://www.paloaltou.edu/graduate-programs/phd-programs/phd-clinical-psychology
