Integrating Research & Practice

As to objective indicators of the effectiveness of this training, we are proud that PCSAS students as a whole score better on state licensing exams and are matched in internship placements at a higher rate than non-PCSAS students. Importantly, PCSAS graduates also make significant contributions to applied clinical science as evidenced by high levels of application-related publications in the scientific literature, serving as educators and trainers for future generations of clinical psychologists, assuming leadership roles in service delivery service organizations, and advancing treatment and assessment development, evaluation, and dissemination. PCSAS graduates do practice. In a recent comprehensive analysis of over ten years of PCSAS graduates, we found that 73% report engaging in clinical service delivery in their current positions.
