The Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program at the University of Maine has been reaccredited for the next seven years, the longest professional accreditation period granted to only the strongest programs reviewed by the Washington, D.C.-based American Psychological Association (APA). Accreditation by the APA reflects the quality of educational programs, speaks to a sense of public trust and serves as an assurance that an accredited institution meets nationally endorsed standards and accountability within the profession.
The UMaine Ph.D. in clinical psychology, which has been continuously accredited by the APA since 1975, prepares graduates for careers combining research and clinical practice.
A recent survey of program alumni found that 95 percent are licensed practitioners, most live in the Northeast and most are engaged in grant-supported research.
Clinical psychology is the largest Ph.D.-granting program at UMaine and also has the fastest time-to-degree and lowest attrition rates among doctoral programs, according to Doug Nangle, professor and director of clinical training in the Department of Psychology.
