All clinical psychologists providing direct services to the public must be licensed or certified by the state or province in which they practice. Doctoral level licensure typically requires completion of a prescribed educational requirement, pre- and postdoctoral supervised experience and successful completion of the national Examination for Professional Practice of Psychology (EPPP) as well as specific state or provincial requirements. Completion of Midwestern's accredited program meets or exceeds the educational requirement in all 50 states (AL, AK, AZ, AR, CA, CO, CT, DE, FL, GA, HI, ID, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, MT, NE, NC, NH, NJ, NM, NY, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VT, VA, WA, WV, WI, WY) and territories of the District of Columbia (DC), Puerto Rico (PR), and the U.S. Virgin Islands (VI).
However, additional licensure requirements will vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Each student should check the additional licensure requirements for the state, district or territory in which they intend to pursue employment.
