About the Clinical Centers
1. About

The Loyola Clinical Centers provides state-of-the-art facilities and treatment for people experiencing difficulties in the areas of psychology, pastoral counseling, literacy, hearing, speech, and language. The Centers operates from three locations: Loyola Clinical Centers Belvedere Square and Loyola/Notre Dame Library in Baltimore City, and Loyola's Columbia Graduate Center in Columbia, Howard County. Some services are also provided off-site through partnerships with schools and community agencies.

From these locations, the Loyola Clinical Centers is devoted to wellness in every aspect—from wellness of an individual or a family, to wellness of the community as a whole. Operating under the auspices of Loyola University Maryland, the Clinical Centers serve a dual function: to provide hands-on clinical training to Loyola graduate students, and to supply affordable, quality care to underserved members of the greater Baltimore community. The collaboration between community, students, and expert clinicians at the Loyola Clinical Centers shows that integrated care is truly a benefit for everyone.

2. Work/Teach Here

Where your hands-on expertise can lift and entire community.

The Loyola Clinical Centers is one of the only interdisciplinary graduate training clinics in the United States, and through its partnership with Loyola University Maryland's graduate programs, it provides a unique approach to clinical training that emphasizes comprehensive care and commitment to community. Whether you learn, work, or teach at the Loyola Clinical Centers, you will have the opportunity to contribute to both greater knowledge in your field and the Greater Baltimore community.

This dual emphasis on scholarship and hands-on experience creates a highly relevant clinical education, one that employs the latest, empirically supported treatment, but is also immersed in the compassionate, personal, and community aspects of clinical work. At the heart of the Loyola Clinical Centers is a strong collaboration between faculty and student, institution and community. As they complete their practitioner-based curriculum, students work closely with experienced faculty and expert supervisors to diagnose and treat a wide range of difficulties.

Students who complete their clinical training at the Loyola Clinical Centers are uniquely prepared to begin their professional careers as balanced, compassionate individuals committed to improvement on both an individual and community level--as well as at a competitive advantage for externships and jobs among their peers. At the same time, faculty members are able to perform a service to their community, while offering important supervision and support to future clinicians. The Loyola Clinical Centers encourage a broad-based approach to diagnosis and treatment that inspires collaboration among clinicians, and takes into account the many factors that affect a person's wellness at each stage of their life.
