50th Anniversary Celebration

Homecoming Banner

Clinical Psychology Training Program & Psychological Service Centre
1968 – 2018


In 1968, the University of Manitoba established the Clinical Psychology Training Program within the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Arts.  This accredited training program provides high quality clinical training to graduate students in Clinical Psychology and is the only such training program in the province of Manitoba.  

To facilitate student training, the university also established the Psychological Service Centre (PSC) on the Ft. Garry Campus, which operates as a community resource to adults and children in need of psychological services.

Please join us to celebrate the past 50 years of training excellence at one or both of the following events:
