At its July 2012 meeting, the National Register Board of Directors elected Molly S. Clark, PhD, to a four-year term on the Board beginning January 1, 2013.
Dr. Clark reacted to her election by stating, “My election to serve on the National Register of Health Service Psychologists is an honor and a privilege. The National Register provides distinction to the profession of psychology and value to its community of health service psychologists. It is my sincere hope that my work with the NR Board will result in the continued growth of the organization and the services provided to psychologists, especially those early in their careers. In addition, I hope to bring a fresh perspective to the mission-driven activities of the National Register, such as creating increased opportunities for licensure mobility, positioning health service psychologists in integrated healthcare settings and in state and federal healthcare agencies, and marketing psychological services to consumers. I look forward to serving the organization and its robust population of health service psychologists.”
Since 2007, Dr. Clark has been a member of the psychology faculty at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Dr. Clark was the 2010 recipient of the Judy E. Hall Early Career Psychologist Award.
Dr. Clark received her PhD in counseling psychology from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2005. She completed her postdoctoral fellowship at University of Mississippi Medical Center in the department of family medicine.

About The National Register
The National Register is the largest credentialing organization for psychologists. The independent, non-profit organization was created in 1974 with the help of the American Psychological Association and the American Board of Professional Psychology. Today, the National Register is the leading source of information on nationally credentialed psychologists in health care. Psychologists who are awarded national registrant status have achieved the highest educational and professional standards in health care. Early career psychologists can accumulate the necessary credentials during their training so that when they apply for a license to practice, they also are ready to become registrants of the National Register. It is the only independent, credentialing body with a national level standard for verifying education and training qualifications, licensing, and ethical standards with more than 12,000 doctoral level psychologists in its database. The National Register is relied upon by the health care industry, state and provincial licensing boards, and consumers. National Register also provides this valuable information to consumers as a free referral service to top quality psychologists at www.findapsychologist.org.
