Few PsyD programs achieve a 100 percent match rate with students matching at APA-accredited internship sites, especially for consecutive years in a row. Dr. Patti Kimbel Clinical Assistant Professor and Director of Training

All 15 students in Roosevelt’s Doctorate in Clinical Psychology 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. The current national trend match rate for PsyD programs is 91 percent.

It is particularly impressive that all of the students matched to American Psychological Association (APA) accredited internship sites. “Few PsyD programs achieve a 100 percent match rate with students matching at APA-accredited internship sites, especially for consecutive years in a row,” said Dr. Patti Kimbel, clinical assistant professor and director of training.

Just a few of the sites at which our students will intern include Tripler Army Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, California State University, and the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center. Many of the sites where the Roosevelt students applied are highly competitive with over one hundred applicants for just a few positions. “The match to these sites stands as a testament to the caliber of Roosevelt’s PsyD students,” added Kimbel. “Roosevelt students are highly sought after with sites offering positions to our students over multiple years.”
