PCSAS Accreditation

Our Clinical Science and Psychopathology Research (CSPR) program is also accredited by the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System.**

The CSPR program at the University of Minnesota is a member of the Academy of Psychological Clinical Science, a coalition of doctoral training programs that share a common goal of producing and applying scientific knowledge to the assessment, understanding, and amelioration of human problems. Membership in the Academy is granted only after a thorough peer review process.

Membership in the Academy indicates that the CSPR program at the University of Minnesota is committed to excellence in scientific training, and to using clinical science as the foundation for designing, implementing, and evaluating assessment and intervention procedures. The program was one of those involved in starting the Academy.
