Hassan’s Answer

According to US News https://www.usnews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-health-schools/clinical-psychology-rankings the top 5 are:
University of California--Los Angeles
University of North Carolina--Chapel Hill
Stony Brook University--SUNY
University of California--Berkeley
University of Minnesota--Twin Cities

Of course there are other sources but it's hard to judge how reliable they are.

Maybe the best approach would be to start with the end goal in mind. What's your ideal job and at what employer? Then survey those employers to see what graduates they prefer to hire.

Hi Hassan, Thank you for this list. I am actually interested in PsyD program which differ from clinical PhD programs. I believe this list is primarily PhD programs. Devon S.

According this list here (https://study.com/articles/Ranking_of_PsyD_Programs_Top_Schools_with_Doctor_of_Psychology_Programs.html) These are the following schools with a top psyD program:

Rutgers University
At Rutgers University, students in the Psy.D. program are able to gain a diverse education by creating individualized fields of study with classes in other related disciplines, such as education, management, and medicine.

U.S. News and World Report recognized Rutgers University in 2020 by ranking it 22nd among public schools and 62nd among all national colleges and universities. The school's graduate clinical psychology program was tied at #50. The Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology offers three Doctor of Psychology tracks with emphases on hands-on clinical training, including clinical, school, and organizational psychology.

Baylor University
Baylor University's Psy.D. in clinical psychology offers students training in both academic and professional psychology, as well as around 3,000 hours of clinical experience and 1,000 hours of research experience. Baylor University was ranked tied at 79th in the nation in 2020 by U.S. News and World Report.

In 1971, the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience established the nation's second Doctor of Psychology program. The graduate-level psychology program was ranked tied at #62 by U.S. News and World Report for 2020. Baylor's clinical psychology program has been continually accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA), longer than any other Psy.D. program in the country.

Hofstra University
Hofstra University offers a Psy.D. in School-Community Psychology. On the Long Island campus of Hofstra University, students can earn a Psy.D. in School-Community Psychology, which trains students to work as psychologists in educational settings or human services organizations. In particular, the program emphasizes the importance of a strong connection between the school and the broader community when dealing with mental health issues. Students take lecture-based courses, conduct research in the field, and get real-world experience in the community through internship opportunities. For 2020, Hofstra was ranked tied at #162 among national universities and tied at #135 for its graduate psychology program by U.S. News and World Report.
