Training clinical psychologists for rural and northern practice: Transforming challenge into opportunity

Abstract

The Rural and Northern Program (R&NP) of the University of Manitoba's Department of Clinical Health Psychology (DCHP) is a unique training and service delivery platform that was developed in response to the scarcity of psychological services in rural and northern areas of the province of Manitoba, Canada. Since 1996 rural and northern-based psychologists, in conjunction with the faculty based in Winnipeg (Manitoba's largest city) have offered training to two interns and one postdoctoral resident (resident) yearly.

The authors conclude by offering suggestions for creating sustainable rural/northern psychological practice.
