CMTP LOOKS BACK: REFLECTIONS ON A 50 YEAR HISTORY

About CMTP

The Center for Multicultural Training in Psychology (CMTP), at Boston Medical Center and the Boston University School of Medicine, hosts an APA-accredited clinical internship program, which has been fully accredited since 1986 and is currently continuing a ten year accreditation through 2031. This program formally began at Boston City Hospital (BCH) in 1972 as the Minority Training Program in Clinical and Community Psychology and is the longest standing culturally focused and social justice oriented program in the nation.

The program’s primary mission has always been and remains focused on training multiculturally oriented psychologists to work with inner-city, low income and racially/ethnically diverse populations, aligned with BMC’s mission of serving the underserved.

The Program is looking back, and reflecting on its 50 years history, on June 30th, 2022.

We welcome you to join our faculty, interns, and alumni as they share their insights and reflections.
