The American Psychology Association recently granted Central Michigan University’s clinical psychology program a seven-year accreditation, the longest accreditation period available.

“Seven years clearly indicates they’re not worried about us,” said George Ronan, who was the director of the graduate program during the accreditation process and also is a psychology faculty member at CMU.

Three members of the American Psychology Association came to CMU for three days in April to review the program. Representatives from the University of South Dakota, Duquesne University and Texas Tech University met with faculty and toured the campus facilities before granting accreditation.

To achieve accreditation the clinical program must meet national standards for training. Every aspect of the program is reviewed, including the quality of the faculty, the quality of the instruction, placements of the students in their residencies and what the students do after graduation.

The APA began the accreditation process at CMU in 1989 and granted the program full accreditation in 1996. To maintain accreditation the director of the clinical psychology program must send a report about CMU’s program to the APA every year.

“It’s the program’s responsibility to demonstrate excellence,” Ronan said.

The clinical program measures its success by monitoring the performance of graduates. This past year, the department surveyed 100 graduates to gather the information.

Most of the clinical psychology faculty members have a research clinic housed in the Psychological Training and Consultation Center, which is located in the Carl’s Center for Clinical Care and Education in CMU’s Health Professions Building.

Applicants to the clinical psychology program must name one of the faculty members with whom they wish to work. Only six to eight students are accepted into the program every year, making entry into the program competitive.

For information on admission to the program, contact the chairperson of the Clinical Admissions Committee by visiting or call the psychology department at (989) 774-6463.
