Program Description

The Department of Clinical Health Psychology is both an academic department within the Faculty of Health Sciences (College of Medicine) at the University of Manitoba, and a Clinical Program within the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.  We are accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association through 2017-2018. The goal of our residency is to train generalist clinical psychologists with skills to work in both mental health and clinical health psychology. Applicants may apply to one or more of the following five different streams or areas of emphasis: Adult, Child and Adolescent, Adult Neuropsychology, Rural-Generalist, Rural-Adult Lifespan. Core training in assessment/consultation and evidence-based intervention (mental health and health psychology), with diverse patient populations and presenting problems, comprise residents' major rotations. Residents participate in seminars on professional and clinical issues, case presentations, and teaching rounds.  Ample opportunities exist for interprofessional education and academic enrichment by virtue of our department's organization within the University of Manitoba's College of Medicine. Please note that our program follows all APPIC regulations, including use of the Standardized Reference Letter (SRL) format (previously the CCPPP Standardized Reference Letter). Applicants should direct their reference writers to the APPIC website for access and instructions on how to use the SRL.
