United States Navy Clinical Psychology Training and Accession Programs

The Navy Clinical Psychology community is made up of more than 200 licensed clinical psychologists who proudly serve as officers in the United States Navy. Navy Psychologists provide clinical care and assessment to Sailors, Marines, and their families. They also provide prevention-related services, training and education, and consultation to military leaders. Their mission is to optimize the health and well-being of service members while increasing the operational readiness of Navy and Marine Corps units.  

There are five ways to join our community, depending on where you are in your professional training. We offer scholarships for graduate school, enrollment in the clinical psychology Ph.D. program at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS), fully accredited pre-doctoral internships, and a postdoctoral fellowship. We also welcome fully-licensed clinical psychologists who want to join our professional community.
