  • Interview and Application

    Although most of our applicants who have been offered residency slots have visited Mississippi, face-to-face interviews are not mandatory (residents have been selected without an interview). However, past residents have stressed the importance of the interview in their decision to select the UMMC/VAMC clinical psychology residency. Also, the selection committee would very much like to have the opportunity to meet prospective candidates. After we receive your application and letters from your mentors, we will let you know if you have been selected for an interview. Once you are selected, you will be assigned to a team of residents who will be responsible for coordinating your interview and assisting you in finding a place for you to stay while visiting Jackson.

    Also, please make every effort to introduce yourself to a faculty member while at upcoming conferences such as ABCT and NAN. We want to put a face to a name. Application deadline is Nov. 1.


    Please e-mail Lumba Johnson, Program Coordinator, for information about the program and application process.

    The program application can be completed online at Please be sure to attach your CV and 3 letters of recommendations to your online application.
