During practicum students develop their competencies through direct client contact, supervision by experienced psychologists and other clinicians, and consultation with an array of health service providers. Students are exposed to the management and administration of mental health delivery systems. Additionally, practicum provides the opportunity for students to develop the professional and personal attitudes important to the identity of a professional psychologist.
