Clinical psychology is a major subfield within psychology and those working in the
field enjoy rewarding careers helping individuals move towards emotional good health.
Clinical psychology professionals work with individuals, families, and groups in any
number of settings including hospitals, academic settings or private practice.
Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine graduates are well prepared to provide
essential services—either in specialized treatment of certain disorders or in a more
generalist environment—to today's diverse populations particularly the underserved.
At PCOM, highly credentialed faculty present a curriculum that addresses the most
current developments in psychology teaching students the science of psychology with
practical clinical applications. We offer a cognitive-behavioral theoretical orientation
and teach students to apply empirically-supported approaches in delivering clinical
services in collaboration with primary care physicians and providers. PCOM uses high-fidelity
simulators and patient actors in its Standardized Patient Program, immersing students
in realistic experiences and clinical situations. Students also benefit from learning
in an osteopathic medical school environment and from a campus-wide sense of serving
and understanding the "whole person."
Programs offered at PCOM include the Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology as well as two post-doctoral certificates including one in Clinical Health Psychology and one in Clinical Neuropsychology.
