APA Grants Clinical Psychology Program 10 Years of Re-Accreditation

The doctoral training program in Clinical Psychology at Ohio University was granted the maximum 10 years of re-accreditation by the American Psychological Association.

The program has been accredited by the APA since 1970, and the next review will take place in 2028.

The intense two-year re-accreditation process included gathering learning outcome data, competency data, climate data, and research productivity data from faculty, clinical supervisors, current students, and alumni of the program. It also involved writing a lengthy self-study and undergoing a two-day external site visit review.

Dr. Julie Suhr, Professor and Director of Clinical Training, noted that “our research focus, our commitment to training the next generation of psychologists, and our strong outcome data played major roles in our successful re-accreditation.”

OHIO’s Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program has had a 100 percent match rate to required APA-accredited internships over the past several years.

“Thanks to Julie Suhr in particular for all of the time and effort that she spent preparing the program’s self-study report and organizing the site visit,” said Dr. Bruce Carlson, Associate Professor and Chair of Psychology. “Thanks also to everyone—faculty, staff, and students—who contributed to the Clinical Section’s response to the re-accreditation review.”
