Abstract

The 2005 National Register International Survey assessed doctoral students' familiarity with licensure, credentialing, and professional organizations in psychology in the United States and Canada. A total of 3,835 doctoral students responded online. Results indicated the substantial majority planned to apply for a license but had not researched the requirements and that less than half were familiar with named credentialing organizations. The authors recommend ways for professional organizations and doctoral programs to disseminate information on licensing and credentialing to increase student awareness and prevent qualification problems.
