is a project of the National Register disseminating educational resources and self-help strategies to the public, and providing healthcare consumers access to a database of verified psychologists who meet competencies required for the Health Service Psychologist credential and distinction. 

What does it mean to be a National Register Credentialed Health Service Psychologist? 

Not all psychologists are credentialed.  In fact, the distinction requires a strict review of education, thousands of hours of supervised experience, and an exemplary record of professional practice.  The psychologists you find in the database is credentialed by the National Register of Health Service Psychologists and are distinguished from other psychologists because they have met specific standards including:

  • An active and unrestricted license.
  • Doctoral degree from an accredited doctoral program.
  • At least 3,000 hours of approved supervised experience in psychology.
  • No pending or current disciplinary action or evidence of professional misconduct, including but not limited to any departure from or failure to conform to the standards of acceptable and prevailing psychological practice.
