Current evidence suggests that the Boulder (scientist-professional) model of training in clinical psychology is eminently successful and widely accepted. The author argues that (a) alternative models of training that deemphasize research or general psychology and those programs not based in a university are unnecessary and undesirable, and (b) regardless of the type of model used, the highest level of quality is essential for the profession and the discipline of psychology. It is contended that ultimate control of the quality of education and training rests with psychology. (31 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
