We aim to train students who, by the time of graduation, demonstrate the competencies required by the profession and the program’s competencies research competencies (PDF), clinical work competencies (PDF), and teaching competencies (PDF), and who after graduation are able to engage in professional activities consistent with health service psychology and with the program's aims.
