Applicants from diverse, under-resourced, traditionally underrepresented, and/or marginalized backgrounds are encouraged to apply for this mentorship support program.

About the GRE requirement

GRE scores are optional for the 2022-2023 application cycle. In keeping with our lab’s goal to increase diversity, we prefer that applicants include their Psychology GRE and regular GRE scores with their application. For applicants who did not have the means or support to attend a ‘prestigious’ university or obtain a high GPA, the GRE is the best way to demonstrate that their application still deserves serious consideration.

About clinical training in neuropsychology

We welcome applications from students interested in clinical neuropsychology. Within the general clinical psychology program, we work with students to assemble coursework and supervised clinical training experiences that conform to Houston Conference and Clinical Neuropsychology Synarchy guidelines. Training can include internal neuropsychological assessment practica at the UBC Psychology Clinic and external placements at local hospitals (e.g., the neuropsychology rotations of the Vancouver Coastal Health predoctoral residency program regularly offer practicum placements on a competitive basis).
