The Health Service Psychologist (HSP) credential, offered by the National Register since 1974, is a distinction for doctoral-level psychologists. Approval requires submission and evaluation of education and training credentials, a thorough background examination, and verification of an active, unrestricted psychology license. HSP credential holders have access to all National Register benefits.
If you don’t meet our HSP qualifications, enrolling in this alternate program can still provide you with access to many National Register opportunities. For more information on program specifics and benefits, view the FAQ section below and benefit details above.
