Clinical Psychology
Certification
& Testing
Psychologists in an
independent practice
or offer any type of
patient care
(including clinical, counseling, and school psychologists) - must meet certification or licensing requirements in
all
States. Specific licensing laws can vary from state to state as well as the type of position held. Professional licenses and certifications requires psychologists to
only
practice within the scope of
their expertise
, which they have obtained
through their education and training
. For
clinical
and counseling psychologists, a
doctorate
in psychology is usually required. In addition to the doctorate degree, an
approved internship
and
one
to
two years
of
professional experience
is also needed.
All states
also require that applicants
pass
an
examination
. In most states, the
examination
consists of a
standardized test
administered by the
state licensing board
. In
some
cases, applicants are
also
required to complete additional
oral
or
essay questions
.
