Program Outcomes

Learn about the clinical psychology program’s research productivity, and licensure and employment data.

Reflecting our emphasis on clinical science, graduate students in the clinical program are successful in research. On average, our current graduate students in clinical psychology have 8.4 publications, and they have authored or co-authored 15.5 papers presented at professional conferences.

Excluding students who are on residency, 18 (55%) currently hold competitive external research fellowships, and an additional 14 (42%) students are current recipients of competitive university fellowships.

At the time of graduation, 100% of our graduates in the past five years had at least one publication, and 100% had presented their research at a professional conference at least once.

Of 26 recent graduates from our program, 21 are already registered as psychologists and the remainder are in process. None has been unsuccessful in seeking registration.

Eleven of 19 recent graduates from our program are employed in settings that involve at least some research activity (most of these also include clinical service provision). Seven were employed in clinical positions or have opened a private practice, and one works in the technology industry.

Graduates from our program have gone on to hold faculty positions both in Canada (e.g., Concordia University, Dalhousie University, Simon Fraser University, University of British Columbia, York University, University of Toronto) and abroad (e.g., Texas Tech University, Wesleyan University).

In addition, other recent graduates hold positions outside of universities that nevertheless involve a significant amount of scholarly activity. These positions include hospital-based jobs in mental health units that have a dual mission of research and clinical service such as BC Women’s and Children’s Hospital, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, Alberta Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and Stanford University School of Medicine.
