Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) in Clinical Psychology
Welcome to the Graduate Institute of Professional Psychology (GIPP), and thank you for your interest in the Doctor of Psychology program at the University of Hartford.
The primary, overarching mission of this program is to prepare students for effective functioning in the multiple roles which we believe that doctoral level practicing psychologists will need to fill in these rapidly changing times. Our aim is to prepare competent, compassionate, and self-aware clinical psychologists who are skilled in the delivery of direct services, effective in consultation to human service agencies, knowledgeable about current empirical and theoretical developments, able to integrate scientific knowledge with clinical practice, capable of designing and critically evaluating clinical services, culturally competent and able to assume leadership positions in clinical settings.
As a member of the National Council of Schools and Programs of Professional Psychology (NCSPP) the doctoral program endorses and subscribes to NCSPP's resolutions and guidelines concerning standards, curriculum, and diversity in the preparation of professional psychologists and attempts to incorporate them in our program.
