It was a “perfect match” for LIU Brooklyn on Psychology Internship Match Day.  All of the doctoral students in the LIU Brooklyn Clinical Psychology Ph.D. Program who applied for year-long clinical internships got their first choice of training site.

“Our students applied to many of the finest training sites in the nation,” said Dr. Phil Wong, Coordinator, Externship Program, Ph.D. Program in Clinical Psychology. “We are very proud that each of our students was selected among a highly competitive national pool of students and matched for their first choice.”

LIU Brooklyn’s elite Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program is a highly competitive program that is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association. It integrates new developments in the field without changing its core mission to provide doctoral training that gives rise to theoretical and clinically oriented questions which can become the basis for scholarly work and enable students to become excellent clinicians.

The program features a very strong student-faculty ratio. The faculty serve as academic advisors, clinical supervisors and research mentors in an atmosphere of stimulating intellectual dialogues about both clinical and research phenomena. The diversity of the student body at the Brooklyn Campus and the Ph.D. Program’s collaborative relationships with a range of training facilities in the New York area help students to develop their skills in a multicultural learning environment. The Ph.D. Program prides itself on the attention given to its doctoral students and the supportive, intellectually challenging atmosphere it provides.
