These programs each provide one year (16 and 19 credits respectively) of specialty training to doctoral-level psychologists or current PCOM Clinical PsyD students that will enable them to render ethical comprehensive services in medical settings and to medical patients.


These programs are designed to provide advanced, specialized training and post-doctoral hours/training that students may apply toward licensure in psychology (check with individual states for specific requirements) and/or toward subsequent board certification by the American Board of Professional Psychology.
