The listing of clinical training programs in the table below are all members of the Council of Clinical Health Psychology Training Programs (CCHPTP). CCHPTP is a non-profit organization of programs devoted to the promotion and advancement of high quality standards of graduate and postgraduate education and training within the field of clinical health psychology. Consistent with this purpose, CCHPTP member programs strive to educate and train future clinical health psychologists to promote human welfare and to advance the growth of health psychology science and practice. CCHPTP member programs are devoted to training clinical health psychologists capable of functioning as scientific investigators and as practitioners, consistent with the highest standards of clinical health psychology.
Additional information on CCHPTP, including information on the application process for program members, can be found by clicking here.
We are currently working on generating a more comprehensive listing that includes additional clinical training programs that are not CCHPTP members. In the meantime, please consult the APA listing of clinical psychology programs found here for a more comprehensive list.
