Clinical Psychology Program
We are seeking candidates with the ability to contribute actively to the operation of our Clinical Psychology Graduate Program (http://www.uvic.ca/socialsciences/psychology/graduate/clinical-psychology).

Students and faculty from across the two tracks learn from each other in a collegial environment. The clinical psychology graduate program, along with the Department, Faculty of Social Sciences, and University has a strong commitment to equity and inclusivity, and we value candidates who share this commitment in their scholarship, teaching, and practice.
