The Clinical Psychology Program at the University of Maryland has been accredited by the American Psychological Association since 1963. The program is structured to embody a Clinical Science model. This means that the program seeks to integrate the science and practice of clinical psychology; providing intensive education and training in the scientific method and also providing extensive clinical experience to students through the program's in-house Psychology Clinic, affiliated clinics, and research programs. Clinical training is based on empirically-supported methods and students are taught to fully integrate their research and scientific training with their clinical work. Our focus on clinical science is facilitated by extensive grant-funded research (including grants from the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Institute on Drug Abuse) and the availability of outstanding faculty in the other programs within the Psychology Department (e.g., Cognitive and Neural Systems, Developmental Psychology) and on campus (e.g., Human Development). A unique aspect of the Maryland Clinical Program is our proximity and affiliation with a range of extraordinary clinical and research facilities in Washington D.C. and Baltimore including the National Institute of Mental Health; Children's National Medical Center; the Department of Psychiatry, University of Maryland School of Medicine; the Maryland Psychiatric Research Center; and the VA Capitol Health Care Network Mental Illness Research Education Clinical Center. This offers an exceptionally exciting research environment in a location that abounds with academic, cultural, and recreational opportunities.
