Students who successfully complete a Master’s degree are expected to continue in the program toward a Ph.D. degree.   The doctoral program provides advanced research training, culminating in the Ph.D. thesis for all students, and advanced clinical training for those following the Clinical Profile.   The clinical training program is accredited by both the Canadian and American Psychological Associations and by the Ordre des psychologues du Québec.
