CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY PHD FRESNO GRADUATES
Our graduates have successful careers because the broad-based curriculum trains students to think critically, assume many roles, solve problems in those roles, and create professional niches for themselves in a changing health care environment.
We are excited to note that our graduates are combining clinical practice (95%), research (63%), and teaching (55%) in their professional lives, and 70% have been in leadership or administrative positions with their agencies. This is very positive support for our scholar-practitioner model of training with its mix of clinical practice, research, and teaching.
