Site Name: Edmonton Consortium Clinical Psychology Residency
With COVID-19, we have elected to offer only virtual interviews. During the interview, we will discuss the opportunities available and you will have a chance to meet with the Director of Training, Associate Director(s) of Training, and some of the Coordinators or Supervisors. You will also have an opportunity to talk with one of the current residents in a more informal information sharing. We offer approximately 36 interviews for the 6 positions. Applicants will be informed if they are offered an interview on 4 December 2020. The interview dates will be 18 - 29 January 2021. If applicants have special requests, they can contact the Director of Training to look at options.
We are a consortium composed of a large psychiatric hospital, a rehabilitation hospital, and a large general hospital. We offer two streams - Generalist and Neuropsychology. Five positions are available within the Generalist stream and one position is available within the Neuropsychology stream. Within the Generalist stream we have seven rotations (Adult Mental Health, Brain Injury, Eating Disorders, Forensic, Health, and Paediatrics). A resident does not need previous experience in these specific areas to work in a rotation and we focus on the development of a broad range of skills in assessment, treatment, and consultation. For the Generalist stream, residents choose two major rotations, each lasting six months. For the Neuropsychology stream, incoming residents need to have previous experience in neuropsychology. We offer the opportunity to see clients across the life-span with children, adults, and geriatric clients. All residents in both streams choose one minor rotation that is one day a week for the duration of the residency year. There is one nonclinical day per week, where residents attend a didactic seminar series, work on a research project and participate in a resident group discussing issues such as development of supervision skills and presentation of cases. Please see our website for more information.

In all the above, the amount of focus on an area depends on the rotations in which the resident works and their training goals. Not everyone will do everything as a major focus but it is possible to get a major focus in the areas checked off.
Additional information about training opportunities: Not all rotations or training experiences may be available as described in the APPIC Directory. Please consult the program's application materials or their website at:
