FUTURE ACCREDITATION PLANS The principal goal of the doctoral program in Clinical Psychology at the University of Wisconsin- Madison is to train clinical psychological scientists who will: 1) generate new and significant knowledge about the factors that influence mental health and illness, 2) develop more effective methods for treating mental illness and promoting mental health, and 3) deliver evidence based, cost effective, clinical care to treat psychopathology and improve mental health. We have been continuously accredited by the American Psychological Association since 1948. Consistent with our commitment to the most rigorous training in clinical science, we have also been accredited by the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System (PCSAS) since 2014. We intend to pursue renewal of our accreditation with the APA when our current accreditation period ends in 2019. We will consider not continuing accreditation with APA after this next accreditation cycle if we determine that APA accreditation requirements do not align with our programs fundamental clinical science training goals and/or the optimal preparation of our graduates. We intend to maintain accreditation with PCSAS to guarantee that we meet the highest standards with respect to clinical science training. STUDENT ADMISSIONS, OUTCOMES, AND OTHER DATA
