The Department of Clinical Health Psychology in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Manitoba, offers eight pre-doctoral residency positions in Clinical Psychology. We have a long history of APA and CPA accreditation, but elected to discontinue our APA accreditation at the end of the 2010-2011 training year, in light of APA's plan to discontinue accreditation outside the U.S. 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. Four different streams or areas of emphasis are available (Adult, Child and Adolescent, Adult Neuropsychology, Rural); however, all residents have the opportunity to acquire knowledge and develop competence in a variety of areas, regardless of the stream they choose. 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. Additional diversity, cross-cultural, and interprofessional experience is also fostered through four "mini-minor" (half-day) experiences chosen among several community agencies that address the health needs of typically under-served clinical populations. Ample opportunities exist for interprofessional education and academic enrichment by virtue of our department's organization within the University of Manitoba's Faculty of Medicine.
