Our PsyD students match at some of the most prestigious and competitive internship sites nationally. 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 overall national trend match rate for PsyD programs is 87 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.

Many of the sites where Roosevelt students applied are highly competitive with over a hundred applicants for just a few positions. “Our students compete not only with other PsyD candidates, but also with PhD candidates, and our students match at some of the most prestigious and competitive sites nationally,” added Kimbel.

Over half of the students matched to sites in the Chicago area, which is also a testament to the competitiveness of our student body. Chicago has some of the most competitive sites in the country. A few of the national sites at which our students will intern include Rutgers Student Health, Kennedy Krieger/Hopkins Behavioral Psychology and Neuropsychology, and Washburn Center for Children. Locally, students will intern at both the Jesse Brown and Edward Hines, Jr. VA medical centers and at the University of Illinois at Chicago Counseling Center.
