The fact that the doctoral program was APA/CPA-approved does not mean that the internship is automatically acceptable. Some individuals have mistakenly assumed that the APA/CPA-approval of the doctoral program means that the internship is APA/CPA-approved as well. The APA/CPA-approval of doctoral programs and internships are two separate processes, and, likewise, the National Register's evaluation of the doctoral program and internship is done separately.
