Hi all, The world of health service psychology (i.e., clinical, counseling, school) is changing. Recently, APA adopted a policy advocating that only students with accredited doctoral program training and accredited internship training will be eligible for a license to practice. Several states have already adopted this rule and more are on the way. Moreover, in a few years, only students from accredited doctoral programs will even be allowed to enter the APPIC match system to get an internship. So, you want to get trained only from ACCREDITED doctoral programs. But when picking an accredited doctoral program, note that some programs have a pretty lousy track record in getting their students matched at accredited internship sites. Check this out: http://mitch.web.unc.edu/files/2013/10/MatchRates.pdf. You will see that the average rate of matching in an accredited internship for most PsyD programs is way lower than for most Ph.D. programs. Imagine paying all of that money and then not being able to get licensed! This is a big change in the field and people need to be very careful!
