Edmonton Consortium Clinical Psychology Residency

The Edmonton Consortium Clinical Psychology Residency is a predoctoral training program for psychologists. We were accredited for a 6 year term in 2017 by the  Canadian Psychology Association.

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).

The Consortium is comprised of three main sites:  Alberta Hospital Edmonton (AHE), Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital (GRH), and University of Alberta Hospital (UAH) as well as some community programs. 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.

Please see our brochure for information on COVID-19 for any modifications to the selection process for 2023-24 and possibly to training experiences within the residency.
