Clinical Psychology at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) adheres to the Clinical Science model of training (see Kazdin, 2008McFall, 1991). The central tenet of the clinical science model of training is that scientific method and evidence are the core of clinical psychology. We follow a generalist model of training, with a primary focus on adults. Our program also maintains that clinical scientists are best trained through a mentorship model. We provide instruction in psychopathology, assessment and intervention.

Faculty at UTSC have research expertise and provide graduate training in:

  • clinical and cognitive neuroscience
  • psychological assessment & clinical neuropsychology
  • psychopathology (including psychosis and mood disorders)
  • personality
  • mindfulness- and acceptance-based psychotherapies

Distinguished by our innovative cross-disciplinary approach to clinical science, we emphasize innovation through novel research programs that push traditional boundaries in psychological clinical research and practice. To learn more, download our 2020 Brochure - Psychological Clinical Science.
