The students of Roosevelt’s PsyD Program continue to excel in achieving a 100 percent match rate for the past eight consecutive years. We are particularly proud of the diversity of internship site placements across the nation, and also the placements at highly-competitive sites within Chicago. Patti Kimbel, PsyD Clinical Assistant Professor and Director of Training

All 23 students in Roosevelt’s Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) program who applied for clinical internships, successfully matched in the national match. The program has achieved a 100 percent match rate every year since 2011. This is particularly impressive given that the recent national trend match rate for PsyD programs is 80 percent.

In addition, all 23 Roosevelt PsyD students matched to American Psychological Association (APA) accredited internship sites. Just a few of the sites at which our students will intern include: University of Wisconsin-Madison Counseling, Veterans Affairs St. Louis Health Care System, Harvard Medical School, Henry Ford Health Sciences Center, University of Illinois-Chicago Counseling Center, and Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital.

“The quality of our students and of our PsyD Program is clearly indicated by our continued success in the national internship match,” said Dr. Patti Kimbel, clinical assistant professor and director of training. “The students of Roosevelt’s PsyD Program continue to excel in achieving a 100 percent match rate for the past eight consecutive years. We are particularly proud of the diversity of internship site placements across the nation, and also the placements at highly-competitive sites within Chicago.”
