It's not analogous. I guess I meant the quality of psychologist CAPIC produce is similar to APPIC, not APA. I have a few supervisors that came out of CAPIC and they are competent. But a whole different topic.
I think as a systemic problem though, every state have different requirements and psychological associations have to lobby for those. Federally, APA can lobby for increase in medicare reimbursements or even lobby for doctorate students who have gotten their MA/MS be able to bill separate compared to other masters level.
