≪Organizer Abstract≫
Clinical psychology training requires achieving clinical competencies as well as refining professional skills such as leadership to effectively work within an evolving health care delivery environment. This symposium showcases data and models of innovative clinical training: a) regarding the efficacy of a psychology training clinic embedded within a large public hospital (trainee skill achievement as well as patient and staff satisfaction are reported); b) design and standardisation of an innovative instrument (the Vignette-Matching Assessment Tool) for assessment of practicum competencies; c) comparative competency viva examination models, timing and portfolio considerations for impact on students' training; d) single case study of the experiences of a visually impaired student within a clinical psychology training program, with comparisons with international data on ways to enhance such training experiences; and e) proposal integrating training in leadership and associated professional competencies into the clinical psychology training curriculum based upon results of a nationwide consultation project.
