Edmonton Consortium Clinical Psychology Residency

Who We Are

The Edmonton Consortium Clinical Psychology Residency (ECCPR) is a predoctoral training program for psychologists. We were accredited for a 6 year term in 2017 by the Canadian Psychology Association. We are currently approved and planning for our re-accreditation site visit over Oct. 30-31, 2023.

We are members of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC) and participate in the APPIC Matching Program (check the APPIC website for information about APPIC policies and procedures). We are also a member of the Canadian Council of Professional Psychology Programs (CCPPP).

What We Offer

The Consortium includes hospital and community-based sites including the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital, University of Alberta Hospital, and Alberta Hospital Edmonton. All of the sites have a strong emphasis on training. We offer a wide range of outstanding training experiences in assessment, treatment, and consultation with diverse client/patient populations. There are some rich opportunities to work as integral members of interdisciplinary teams. The contributions of residents to the clients/patients and program teams are greatly valued.

One of the Edmonton Consortium's greatest strengths is the breadth of experiences available which enables us to meet a wide variety of training goals. Within the generalist stream, there are 5 positions available across rotations in:

  • Adult Mental Health
  • Forensics
  • Eating Disorders
  • Paediatrics
  • Rehabilitation

The neuropsychology stream offers 1 position with rotations available in geriatrics, adults, and paediatrics. Our focus is helping residents become confident professionals within a practitioner-scientist model. We promote the importance of a healthy work-life balance for all our residents.

Refer to our brochure for full and detailed program information, as well as the admissions and selection process and any potential modifications to training experiences for the 2024-25 residency year.
