Doctorate of Psychology in Clinical Psychology Admissions Requirements

The Doctorate of Psychology in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) degree at Medaille is a rigorous program prepares students for the highest level of clinical practice in the field. The PsyD adheres to the practitioner-scholar model of the National Council of Schools and Programs in Professional Psychology, which teaches evidence-based treatment methods. Though the PsyD program is practice-focused, it also will give you a robust background in theory and applied research. This program satisfies the New York requirements for licensure as a psychologist.
