Doctoral Residency Program in Child Clinical Psychology

The Doctoral Residency Program in Child Clinical Psychology at Kinark provides clinical training for doctoral-level psychology students through a scientist-practitioner model. The aim of this program is to prepare residents for independent practice as professional and ethical psychologists working with complex children, youth and families. 

Residents will work on an interdisciplinary team, comprised of child and youth workers, social workers, nurses, psychologists, and psychiatrists, and will learn how to effectively and professionally collaborate within a community mental health team environment. Supervision will be provided by experienced, doctoral-level, registered psychologists. 

This 12-month residency program is open to applicants enrolled in a quality Clinical Psychology Doctoral program with relevant coursework and practicum experience in child and adolescent psychology. CPA/APA accredited doctoral programs are preferred, but applicants from unaccredited programs will be considered. 

All application materials should be submitted by the application deadline of November 15, 2022 11:59 pm EST. Selected candidates will be contacted for an interview soon after the application deadline, on December 2, 2022..
