Only 7% of applicants to all APA accredited clinical psychology programs are accepted each year. This is why we created the postbaccalaureate certificate program. 87% of our postbac certificate graduates are accepted into an APA accredited PhD program, including Fielding’s PhD in Clinical Psychology program.
Our unique postbaccalaureate certificate program prepares you to be:
(1) a competitive applicant to clinical psychology PhD programs, and
(2) a successful doctoral student.
You will work closely with faculty in our APA accredited clinical psychology PhD program to master the knowledge and skills needed to enter and succeed in a clinical psychology doctoral program. These include:
