The primary aim of the Ontario Shores Predoctoral Residency Program is to prepare residents to become competent and autonomous clinical psychologists. Residents will develop skills and knowledge in the areas of diagnosis, assessment, consultation, treatment, as well as professional and ethical issues.
The predoctoral residency program at Ontario Shores incorporates a combination of two concurrent rotations over the course of the year for a total of 1800 hours. Please review our brochure for available rotations.
Each resident is assigned to two supervisors according to their rotations. Each supervisor is a registered psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. At the beginning of the residency, the resident and their supervisor set individualized written goals and objectives. Residents are to meet with each supervisor for a minimum of two hours of supervision per week for a total minimum of four hours per student.
Aside from weekly supervision, residents participate in didactic seminars designed for psychologists, case presentations, and professional development. The topics are founded in current clinical and research driven material related to professional issues, ethical dilemmas, psychodiagnostics, psychotherapy, and rehabilitation.
