Cultivating the next generation of clinical psychologists

Who We Are


The Professional Psychology Program at GW seamlessly combines foundational coursework with real-world experience guided by clinicians, scholars and researchers.

The program follows the "practitioner-scholar" model within the clinical scientist tradition, with writing requirements and practical opportunities increasing over the course of the program. All students hone their diagnostic and treatment skills in the Center Clinic, a nonprofit community health center housed within the program. 

Whether they complete the APA-accredited Doctor of Psychology degree or a postdoctoral fellowship, our alumni leave prepared to serve a diverse client base, conduct groundbreaking research and make a difference in people's lives.

"One of the things I really love about this program is that we're getting hands-on experience working with patients, so while I'm earning my degree I'm also actually working with people. I'm able to apply a lot of what I'm learning to real life cases."
