2011 Graduate Level Example of Excelencia
The Ph.D. Clinical Psychology Program at the Carlos Albizu University (CAU), San Juan Campus offers doctoral education and training in clinical psychology. The Ph.D. Program was founded in 1992. It was first accredited by the American Psychological Association in 1994. We train around 150 graduate students per year that fluctuates between first and fifth year. We provide mentorship, and academic trainings in Clinical Psychology to mainly Hispanic/Latino students.
One of its major goals is to increase the number of Latinos/as students trained in Clinical Psychology who master the required clinical and research skills to investigate mental health issues, particularly those associated with disadvantaged population. Moreover, the Program is unique in its mission of training culturally sensitive psychologists in a Hispanic/Latino cultural context. Our educational philosophy is based on a holistic, dynamic and integrated perspective, which is carried out through a balanced and interconnected sequence of didactic offerings, research opportunities, and experiential training placements. These activities are developed within a context of awareness and sensitivity towards culturally diverse constituencies, with special attention to the Puerto Rican society.
