Clinical Psychology Residency Program
The Clinical Psychology Residency Program (CPRP) is designed to prepare psychology residents to be competent providers of psychological services in support of individuals, families, and organizations within the U.S. Army. Training is based on a practitioner-scholar model and espouses the premise that specific training goals should be directly related to career outcomes. We prepare each resident for a career as an Army clinical psychologist—essentially a dual career, that of military officer and professional psychologist. Training is guided by a competency model approach which focuses specifically on ensuring that the individual resident meets a minimum threshold expected of an independent and advanced specialty practitioner of clinical psychology across nine core and specialty-specific competency domains (described further below). Sound performances on prescribed benchmarks measuring these domains are expected to prepare the resident to meet eligibility criteria for board certification in Clinical Psychology.
