    About the opportunity

    Dalhousie University is Atlantic Canada’s leading research-intensive university and a driver of the region’s intellectual, social and economic development. Located in the heart of Halifax, Nova Scotia, with an Agricultural Campus in Truro/Bible Hill, Dalhousie (www.dal.ca) is a truly national and international university, with more than half of our almost 21,000 students coming from outside of the province.

Halifax is a vibrant ocean-side city, offering an excellent quality of life, including active local food, arts, and music scenes, easy access to outdoor activities, and high-quality health and education centres.

    Dalhousie University’s Clinical Psychology PhD program, within the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, Faculty of Science, is based on a scientist-practitioner model and is designed to give our graduates a thorough grounding in science, research and clinical practice. Students are focused on research from the beginning of the program. Students also start applied training in their first year and continue throughout the program. Due to our emphasis on the science of psychology, our program produces clinical psychologists who blend the ideals of research and service.

    The Clinical Psychology PhD Program is expanding its mandate to include the provision of clinical care to clients through a new community-based psychology training clinic. The clinic will provide mental health and addictions assessment and treatment to Nova Scotians, with particular emphasis on clients from marginalized and diverse populations. The clinic will provide clinical training opportunities for graduate students, provide Nova Scotians access to evidence-based care, and undertake research and evaluation of innovations in the provision of mental health and addictions care.
