Associate Program Member
Psychology doctoral students can join the Associate Program at any stage of their doctoral education. As a member of the National Register Associate Program, you’ll receive immediate access to benefits including a subscription to our monthly newsletter, access to professional training resources like the 42-video Integrated Healthcare Training Series and monthly clinical and risk management webinars, and a chance to engage your community through our listserv. The National Register is also in the process of designing a series of micro-certifications to enrich Associates’ clinical skills and make members more competitive in the internship application process.
Credentials banking is part of the Associate Program once you complete the primary phases of your education and training. You can also submit practicum hours (not required) at no charge as early as your first year of graduate school.
As you complete the primary phases of your education and training, you’ll submit documentation of your internship, doctoral degree, and postdoctoral supervised experience as it happens. Once you are licensed and have met the credentialing requirements for the National Register Health Service Psychologist credential, you’ll receive access to the full range of benefits afforded to our 10,000 credentialed health service psychologists.
