Robin J. Lewis, Graduate Program Director
The Department of Psychology participates in a program that awards the Doctor of Psychology (transitioning to a Ph.D.) in Clinical Psychology. This program, offered through the Virginia Consortium Program in Clinical Psychology, is a joint venture of the Departments of Psychology at Old Dominion University and Norfolk State University, and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Eastern Virginia Medical School. The combined efforts of these institutions give considerable breadth and depth to this unique program. The emphasis of the program is on the training of highly skilled clinicians who will work in those areas of society where mental health care needs are not being met by the present system. The program is fully accredited by the American Psychological Association .
Program catalogs and application materials are available only through the Virginia Consortium Program Office, Virginia Beach Higher Education Center, 1881 University Drive/ Suite 239, Virginia Beach, VA 23453 or telephone at (757)368-1820 , or visit the Virginia Consortium Program in Clinical Psychology Web page.
