Suffolk’s PhD in Clinical Psychology program involves systematic and cumulative training in both psychological research and practice in order to prepare students for careers in practice, research, or academic settings. Our curriculum will help you examine the brain, the person, and the cultural context of individual development all within a career-oriented program.

Whether working in one of our research labs or with one of our esteemed faculty members, you’ll be able to expand your expertise into a variety of areas, such as emotion, body image, bullying, anxiety disorders, and mindfulness.

Our PhD in Clinical Psychology program seeks to prepare students to be competent clinical psychologists who function with ethical and cultural awareness in academic, research, clinical, or community settings. Suffolk students are taught the processes underlying adaptation and maladaptation within a cultural and biopsychosocial frame. Throughout all aspects of training, the program encourages an awareness of and respect for diversity.

Our faculty approach intervention and psychotherapy from a variety of perspectives, including developmental, psychodynamic, systemic, behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and integrative/eclectic. Our intent is to enable students to take a creative, empirical, and ethical approach to diagnostic and therapeutic problems among diverse populations.

Program Aims

The overarching aim of our program is to prepare students for entry-level practice in clinical psychology. We draw from a scientist-practitioner model that emphasizes the reciprocal relationship between science and practice and underscores the value of holding a scientific orientation toward psychological knowledge and methods.

Our aims/goals are that students will:

Aim (Learning Goal) 1: Acquire and demonstrate substantial understanding of, and competence in, the provision of clinical service.

Aim (Learning Goal) 2: Acquire and demonstrate substantial understanding of, and competence in, research.

Aim (Learning Goal) 3: Acquire and demonstrate substantial understanding, knowledge, awareness, sensitivity, and skill when working with diverse individuals and communities who embody a variety of cultural and personal backgrounds and characteristics across all professional roles and activities.

Aim (Learning Goal) 4: Acquire and demonstrate substantial understanding of, and competence in, ethical and legal standards applicable to the science and practice of clinical psychology

Aim (Learning Goal) 5: Acquire and demonstrate substantial understanding of, and competence in, the professional values, attitudes and skills required of clinical psychologists.


The Program in Clinical Psychology was initially accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association in 2000. In 2010 the CoA conferred seven-year full accreditation status to the doctoral program.

This program meets the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards/National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology “Guidelines for Defining ‘Doctoral Degree in Psychology.'” Further, we have made every attempt to design the program to comply with all the regulations of the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Psychologists at the time of program admission so that, with completion of sufficient clinical hours, students may sit for the state licensing examination in clinical psychology. Therefore, graduates of this designated program who decide to apply for licensing as a psychologist typically will meet the educational requirements for licensing. Our courses are consistent with Massachusetts licensing requirements (please see Appendix C for the list). However, in each jurisdiction there may be additional requirements that must be satisfied.
