Student Age, Gender and Diversity
The current age distribution of our Clinical students is 23-37 years old. Approximately 19% of our students are male. In addition, about 59% of our Clinical Psychology students self-identify as belonging to one or more diverse groups (i.e. visible minority, person with a disability, LGTBQ), and 7% self-identify as Aboriginal. We continuously seek to increase the diversity of our student body
Student Research Productivity and Funding Sources
Our clinical students contribute to research in various ways. Many students also contribute to papers, presentations, publications as well as hold memberships in professional and/or scientific societies. Almost all of our students have enjoyed research funding, from internal (university-level) and/or external (tri-council) sources.
All incoming students have the option to participate in paid Graduate Teaching Assistantships with the Department of Psychology; MA students are funded for up to 2 years for teaching assistantships, and PhD students are funded for up to 4 years for teaching assistantships. Several students have also held paid Graduate Research Assistantships, depending upon research supervisor funding.
In 2021, campus Senate introduced the Minimum Funding Policy for PhD students.

Our Clinical Psychology doctoral program was initially accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) in the 2017-2018 academic year for a period of four years. We achieved reaccreditation for six years in the 2021-22 academic year. Our next self study will be due to CPA in December 2027.
