The Postgraduate Program in Psychology, Clinical Psychology area of the Institute of Psychology of the University of São Paulo, has a history of many years. In 1975 was created the Post-Graduation in level of Master and in 1982 was created the Post Graduation in level of Doutorado.

The number of Masters and PhDs that obtained their degrees in our Program indicates that it was constituted, from the beginning, as a training nucleus of teaching staff and researchers for the Brazilian Universities, enabling the creation of other postgraduate centers in the country . Many prominent names within the national clinical psychology scene underwent the Program. The research already carried out in our Program has opened fields and research methodologies that until today guide a great number of researchers in the area.
