Strategically located in Miami Dade County, in the City of Doral, Florida, an area rich in multicultural diversity and laden with the complex socioeconomic and psychosocial realities that accompany such diversity, the Miami Campus of Carlos Albizu University has been in a forefront position in training students who can respond to the needs and demands of a multi-ethnic population. Considered the most multi-ethnic city in the United States, Miami is a vibrant, thriving city which offers students an exciting life outside the campus. Whether it is people watching or partying in world-famous South Beach, tropical style shopping at Bayside Marketplace or dining at one of its ethnic restaurants, Miami offer endless opportunities.
The San Juan Campus houses two training clinics; the Clínica de Salud Mental de la Comunidad, a clinical training center for students enrolled in the doctoral programs in clinical psychology and the Clínica de Patología del Habla y Lenguaje, which is the clinic for students training to become practitioners in the field of language and communication disorders.
The Miami Campus is home to the Goodman Psychological Services Center, the clinical training center for students enrolled in the doctoral program in clinical psychology. Since 1980, the Goodman Center has provided affordable mental health care services to more than ten thousand members of underserved, underrepresented minorities in South Florida.
