The London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium emphasizes clinical service, teaching, and research. The aim of the program is to prepare residents for post-doctoral supervised practice in psychology, particularly within the health care system. This aim is pursued through identification of individual interests, enhancement of strengths, and broadening areas of clinical interest and skill.
2024-2025 Residency Brochure
Professionalism is enhanced through the development of strong interpersonal and communication skills, time management strategies, and an overall positive sense of professional self and identity. While clinical training is emphasized, the scientist-practitioner model serves as the philosophical basis for clinical practice, as well as educational and research endeavours. In line with the goals outlined in the Gainesville Manifesto of 1990, the aim of the scientist-practitioner model is to integrate science and practice, and to facilitate career-long integration of investigation, assessment, intervention, and consultation. Psychology Staff at the Consortium Sites endeavour to maintain both an empirical basis to their clinical practice and clinical relevance in their research.
The Consortium views the program as a pre-requisite to the awarding of the doctoral degree. As a result, we support a model of training in which the predoctoral clinical residency must be completed before the doctoral degree is conferred.
Residents are accepted into one of 8 resident positions:
- Child/Adolescent Track (2 resident positions)
- Adult Mental Health Track (3 resident positions)
- Health/Rehabilitation Track (2 resident positions)
- Neuropsychology Track (1 resident position)
Goals of the Residency Programme
Consistent with the philosophy of the London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium’s program, we continually strive to meet seven goals for the programme.
- To provide all residents with a broad-based training in clinical psychology.
- To increase residents’ awareness and sensitivity of individual differences, including multicultural issues.
- To facilitate the consolidation of residents’ professional identities as psychologists.
- To facilitate the development of skills in providing patient-centred care as part of an interprofessional health care team.
- To facilitate residents’ integration of research into their professional role.
- To integrate consideration of supervisory issues into all components of the predoctoral residency program.
- To maintain the receptivity to feedback from the residents regarding all aspects of their training program.

Information on Accreditation
The London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium was initially formed by a partnership of the London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC), St. Joseph’s Health Care (London; SJHC), Child and Parent Resource Institute (CPRI), and Vanier Children’s Mental Wellness. That residency program had its first cohort of residents begin in 2008, then later expanded to include Mental Health Services at Western University (with the first residency cohort from that five-member consortium beginning in 2012). In 2021 and 2022, due to staffing changes, two partners’ participation – Western University’s Mental Health, Health and Wellness and Vanier Children’s Mental Wellness – were placed on hiatus. Thus, for the 2024-2025 training year the Consortium consists of three partner agencies: LHSC, SJHC, and CPRI.
The London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium was first accredited as a Doctoral Internship Program in Clinical Psychology by the Canadian Psychological Association in 2009, and after our site visit in 2014 it was re-accredited for a 7-year term, from 2013-14 to 2020-21. Our re-accreditation site visit was recently completed in July 2021 and we were re-accredited for a 5-year term.

Changes to the Residency Programme
At the London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium we strive to have the most accurate and up-to-date information in our brochure, and we revise it every year. Nonetheless, changes can occur for many reasons beyond the residency's control, and no programme can guarantee to its residents that the staff and services listed in the brochure at the time of printing will be available throughout the full residency year. In a programme with as many sites, staff, and services as our consortium, some changes are bound to occur. These will be communicated to applicants before and/or during the interview process, and we will endeavor to update this page with those changes as well.
Change to the Interview Notification and Booking Procedure – 2023 (for 2024 Interviews)
The London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium (LCPRC) will be using the National Matching Services (NMS) Interview Scheduler platform for the 2024 APPIC match – for both communicating interview offers and scheduling interviews for January 2024.
All applicants to our program will now be notified via email of their interview status on Friday, December 1, 2023 beginning at 11:00 AM EST, through the NMS Interview Scheduler program. Those invited for an interview will then use the online NMS Interview Scheduler to book their own interview date(s) and time slot as soon as they have been offered an interview.
Applicants who applied to and are offered interviews for more than one Track at our program will be sent separate invitations for each Track, and must then also book two separate interview dates (i.e., one for each Track).
This is a change from what is described in our brochure. There will not be a two-stage process (interview offers on December 1, booking interviews starting December 4, 2023). Instead, applicants offered an interview will book a date and time themselves through the NMS Interview Scheduler program, and can do so as soon as they receive an offer (or offers if being interviewed for more than one Track) on December 1, 2023 starting at 11:00 am EST. Available interview dates and time-slots will be booked on a first-come-first-served basis (several interviews will be conducted on each interview date). There will be separate offer emails – and interview dates – for each of our 4 Tracks.
For each interview offer, applicants select one block of time on their desired date – either one morning slot or one afternoon slot. Multiple people can reserve the same block of time. Each interviewee will be contacted later via email with their individual schedule for the day (likely during the week of December 4, 2023).
All interviews will still take place remotely (via videoconference and/or telephone), and follow a three-part format. Each interviewee will have three meetings on the interview day: a meeting of the individual applicant with the Track interview panel, a group meeting of interviewees with current residents in that Track (held over the noon hour), and a one-hour group meeting of interviewees with the Residency Training Director, Dr. Brent Hayman-Abello, C. Psych.
If you have not received notification of your interview status through the NMS Interview Scheduler shortly after 11:00 AM EST on Friday December 1, 2023 please be certain to check your email’s Spam, Junk, Quarantine or similar folders.
If you have not received any notification about your interview status by 3:00 PM EST on Friday December 1, 2023, or for some reason you are unable to book one of the available dates and time slots, please contact our program:
