Clinical psychology program
Graduates from Eastern Michigan University’s doctoral program in clinical psychology scored a 100 percent pass rate on the national licensing exam over the last five years.
A press release on the EMU website said that it is the only clinical Ph.D. psychology program in the state to achieve a perfect pass rate.
“These are outstanding results,” EMU associate professor Ellen Koch, director of clinical training, said in the release. “The scores of our graduates indicate the rigor and depth of EMU’s doctoral program in clinical psychology. Our students are going on to great careers in the field, in research and in helping clients. We are very proud of our graduates.”
The examination covers eight content areas: biological bases of behavior; cognitive-affective bases of behavior; social and cultural bases of behavior; growth and lifespan development; assessment and diagnosis; treatment, intervention, prevention and supervision; research methods and statistics; and ethical, legal and professional issues.
Other Michigan universities whose clinical psychology doctoral graduates took the exam are Central Michigan University, Michigan State University, University of Michigan, University of Detroit Mercy, Wayne State University and Western Michigan University.
