Clinical Psychology Program

Students have been receiving doctoral training at the Clinical Program at Yeshiva University’s Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology for more than 50 years. The program (PsyD) was established in 1979 and has been fully accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) since 1985.

Our mission is to provide students with doctoral-level training in the conceptual and empirical foundations of clinical psychology, to enable them to become knowledgeable and thoughtful academic scholars, and to train them intensively in a variety of assessment, research, and therapeutic approaches. Students are exposed to a curriculum that integrates relevant research and the scientific foundations of psychology, applied theories, field training, and practical experiences within a wide range of psychological services.

The Clinical Psychology Program, PsyD (five-year program; 116 credits), provides students with the knowledge and skills to assume the role of professional psychologist in diverse settings. The program provides a full-time sequence of training that consists of four years of coursework, practica, and supervised experiences, culminating a full-time internship in the fifth year.
