All clinical psychologists providing direct services to the public must be licensed or certified by the state or province in which they practice. Doctoral level licensure typically requires completion of a prescribed educational requirement, pre- and postdoctoral supervised experience and successful completion of the national Examination for Professional Practice of Psychology (EPPP) as well as specific state or provincial requirements.
