The doctoral program in clinical psychology at UGA was recently accredited by the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System (PCSAS) for a 10-year period. UGA’s program joins a small and prestigious group of only 25 doctoral programs who have been accredited by PCSAS, affirming UGA’s longstanding success in training clinical scientists. This accreditation attests to UGA’s clinical psychology program success in graduating students who are “competent (1) to conduct research relevant to the assessment, prevention, treatment, and understanding of health and mental health disorders; and (2) to use science methods and evidence to design, develop, select, evaluate, deliver, supervise, and disseminate empirically based assessments, interventions, and prevention strategies.”
