Midwestern University is pleased to announce that the Clinical Psychology doctoral program on the Downers Grove Campus received notification in November of full accreditation for the maximum 10-year cycle from the American Psychological Association's Commission on Accreditation.

In their letter of reaccreditation, the Commission recognized the quality of the training provided by the program, the well-qualified faculty, and the dedicated students enrolled in the degree program. The Commission states that the next reaffirmation of accreditation will occur in the 2027-2028 cycle.

"Midwestern University works diligently to maintain the high standards set forth from national accrediting bodies," said Kathleen H. Goeppinger, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Midwestern University. "The Clinical Psychology Program earned this reaccreditation based on its academic rigor, outstanding faculty, and the quality of our students. I appreciate their efforts to uphold Midwestern University's commitment to providing excellent healthcare education."
