The Respecialization in Clinical Psychology post-doctoral certificate is for psychologists who have a doctorate in a nonclinical area of psychology and want to become licensed as a clinical psychologist. The purpose of the program is to build upon prior core psychological learning. Typically, our students hold PhDs in social, developmental, and organizational psychology.
