Pre-requisite: PSY8140 and Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: MCPS or MCPA


To practise with a level of expertise required by a Clinical psychologist, psychologists must be able to understand and critically apply psychological models and practice to specific fields. This practicum builds on the skills developed in the previous practicum to develop advanced skills in the area of Clinical Psychology. It is anticipated that students will be capable of independent work at this stage in their training and will self-manage the mandatory requirements for practice and supervision log books and placement reviews.

The assessment in this course is competency-based. Students will achieve either a pass or fail for each assessment. Students need to pass all assessment items to successfully complete the course. These competency items form part of the USQ accreditation agreement with the accrediting organisation/s (where relevant).

This practicum course provides students with a structured situation in which to advance their knowledge and skills within the Clinical psychology field. While the objectives are similar to the earlier practicum courses, the level of independent practice and the application to specialist areas further challenges the student to broaden and diversify beyond their responsibilities in the earlier placements.
