The CIHR Strategic Training Program in Public Health Policy offers an exciting opportunity to become intellectually and actively involved in the complex tasks demanded by public health policymaking including: policy change; policy analysis; policy assessment; and policy structures and planning. This training program promotes a collaborative multidisciplinary community of researchers, trainees, policymakers, educators and practitioners that works and learns together to address – from a policy perspective – the key issues compromising the public’s health at local, regional, national and global levels. This CIHR training program is open to students accepted into a graduate program at the University of Toronto, and post doctoral fellows engaged in research at the University of Toronto or an affiliated hospital or research unit.

Clinical Psychology Residency Program

 

The CAMH Clinical Psychology Residency Program at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is a CPA-accredited residency. It was previously also APA-accredited until September 2015 when APA decided to discontinue accrediting non-American sites. As of September 1st, 2016, the pre-doctoral internship was renamed a residency to ensure that the trainees’ level of expertise was adequately represented.  Moreover, it became consistent with many sites across the country that had already made the change in name. At CAMH, we are pleased to offer 13 residency placements, making our program one of the largest of its kind in Canada.

The Psychology Residency Program provides clinical training in the context of a scientist-practitioner (Boulder) model. The CAMH residency is especially well-suited to applicants who are bound for academic careers in university psychology departments, teaching hospitals, and other academic settings. In contrast with many residency programs, in which rotations occur sequentially, psychology residents at the CAMH are assigned to two major rotations, which occur concurrently throughout the year.  It is considered to follow a specialist’s model and is best suited for applicants wishing to further hone their skills and develop expertise in services offered by their two rotations over the course of the year. It is NOT suited for those seeking a generalist experience.  In addition, residents may seek further training opportunities through a minor (half-day) rotation with other psychology supervisors at the CAMH or they may choose to participate in research during the internship year. 

The psychology residency positions are open to students who are formally enrolled in a CPA- and/or APA-accredited doctoral program in clinical, counselling, or school psychology, who meet the CPA or APA academic and practicum criteria, and who have received formal approval from their Directors of Training to apply for the residency. As per CPA guidelines, eligibility for residency requires that applicants have completed all requisite professional coursework and practica prior to beginning the residency year. In addition, applicants must have completed a minimum of 600 hours of practicum experience in assessment and intervention strategies, comprised of at least 300 hours of direct client contact and 150 hours of supervision to be eligible.  Finally, prior to applying for residency, applicants must have completed and received approval for their doctoral thesis proposal. 

The residency runs from September 1, 2018 to August 31, 2019.
