Program Description

The purpose of this consortium residency is to engage the resident in all aspects of the HCC and RCAPS services to prepare for independent work as a licensed psychologist. The residency is divided between the HCC and RCAPS during the academic year and then full-time with RCAPS during the summer months.  This year of supervised professional psychological activities meets the postdoctoral supervised experience requirements for licensure in Oregon. The majority of the resident's training includes individual and group psychotherapy with undergraduate and graduate students, supervision of doctoral practicum students, crisis assessments, psychological assessments, administrative duties, training, and consultation/outreach.


As an integrated site with both medical and mental health services, the HCC strives to evaluate, maintain, and promote the general health of students so that they may make the most of their academic experience. The HCC provides short-term therapy to undergraduate and graduate students. As the resident becomes more comfortable and familiar with the HCC and the University, they are asked to take on more responsibilities.  The resident may lead weekly group therapy and workshops. They also may participate in university functions as a representative of the HCC as appropriate.


At RCAPS, the resident will assume the responsibilities for clinical and assessment coordination as determined by the site director. The responsibilities include oversight of practicum students, direct provision of clinical and assessment services and management and implementation of evidenced-based research.

Training Philosophy

The HCC and RCAPS utilize the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model in conceptualizing and attending to the students we see. We consider the integration of these four areas and the larger cultural context in which they unfold to be of key importance when approaching assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning. The emphasis placed on diagnosis and treatment planning, combined with the many services provided by the HCC and RCAPS requires that staff and trainees fully invest in a team approach to serving our clientele. To this end, the training philosophy is also grounded in the spirit of thoughtful collaboration and communication.

  • To provide an opportunity for the development and refinement of clinical skills to facilitate practice at an entry level for professional psychology positions
