On This Page: AccreditationStatistical Information



The Clinical Program at Department of Psychology is accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) and the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System (PCSAS). Our program is also a charter member of the Academy of Psychological Clinical Science. The Clinical Program was accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) from April 1, 1968 until August 31, 2015. APA withdrew from accrediting programs in Canada on September 1, 2015. This was due to a change in their policy and not specific to our program. Following our last site visit by CPA we were accredited for 7 years with the next site visit scheduled in the 2024-2025 academic year.

Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System (PCSAS)

The Clinical Program at McGill was one of the first programs accredited by PCSAS. PCSAS “was created to promote superior science-centered education and training in clinical psychology, to increase the quality and quantity of clinical scientists contributing to the advancement of public health, and to enhance the scientific knowledge base for mental and behavioral health care”. The PCSAS accreditation system was recently recognized by the U.S. Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
