Vancouver Sun Talks with
Dr. Mandrusiak about
Adler School's Psy.D. Program

The Adler School of Professional Psychology is launching a first-of-its-kind doctor of clinical psychology program in Western Canada,  to help cope with the country's expected shortage of psychologists with advanced graduate degrees.

In this Vancouver Sun story, Michael Mandrusiak, Psy.D., Director of Training for the Vancouver Campus, explains that “the Adler School’s commitment to social responsibility—and this new Psy.D. program—fit well with Canada’s fundamental value of social service. It’s unique from a typical Ph.D. in psychology in that it is specifically geared to train graduates as clinicians who understand how to interpret research and how transform it into effective, evidence-based clinical care."

Please note: Licensing and registration bodies consider applications for registration on a case-by-case basis based on several factors, and graduation from a doctoral program in clinical psychology does not in itself guarantee registration. The Adler School's Psy.D. curriculum offered at its Vancouver Campus has been carefully designed to meet the curricular requirements of most licensing and registration bodies in Canada and the U.S., and is intended to prepare graduates who will go on to apply for registration as psychologists.
