Clinical Health Psychology is both an academic department within the Max Rady College of Medicine, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Manitoba, and a regional clinical program within the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority. We offer a twelve month pre-doctoral residency in Clinical Psychology, with Adult, Child, Rural and Neuropsychology streams, starting September 1st each year. The residency program has been continuously accredited since the 1970s, and is currently accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association through the 2023-2024 academic year. For information on accreditation standards, please see:

Our Residency Program endorses the Scientist-Practitioner model of training for professional psychologists. The goal of our residency is to train generalist clinical psychologists, with the skills to work with a variety of populations and the ability to apply research skills and knowledge to the analysis and solution of health problems.

Four different streams or areas of emphasis are available within our residency. Applicants may apply to one or more of these four streams:

  • Adult Stream (4 residents)
  • Child and Adolescent Stream (3 residents)
  • Adult Neuropsychology Stream (1 resident)
  • Rural Stream (3 residents)

For detailed information on Major Rotations and other training opportunities please refer to our brochure at the top of this page.

The stipend for the resident is $60,404.00 for the year. Psychology residents are members of the Professional Association of Residents and Interns of Manitoba (P.A.R.I.M.), and have salary and benefit parity with first year medical residents in the Max Rady College of Medicine, University of Manitoba.

This Residency Program participates in the APPIC Computer Matching Program.

Only Canadian citizens or landed immigrants are eligible to apply for positions as psychology residents. The University of Manitoba encourages applications from qualified women and men, including members of visible minorities, aboriginal people, and persons with disabilities.
