The Clinical Psychology PhD Program in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is founded on a scientist-practitioner model. The overall goal of the program is to graduate academic psychologists who are competent, ethical, and productive in the science and practice of clinical psychology. Our program emphasizes the integration of science and clinical practice.

The program is supported by both Feinberg and The Graduate School at Northwestern University and takes advantage of its placement within an academic medical center by balancing research and clinical training, as well as providing opportunities for translational research and practice that span molecular to social models of disease, and epidemiologic to clinical and neuroimaging methodologies.
