The Importance of Board Certification

The American public is accustomed to health care provided by physicians who are board certified. Did you know, though, that being board certified is not required? However, we have grown to expect that when we go to a doctor, that person is board certified. Physicians and psychologists alike are licensed and can legally practice without being board certified. Board certification is an additional, voluntary process that one goes through to demonstrate competency in a specialty area.

 

The process of licensing psychologists, as with many professions, is based on a review of education, training and experience. It involves taking and passing a written test of knowledge of the field of psychology. The licensure process is intended to address those areas, but it is not designed to assess competency of the professional psychologist in applying what she or he knows. That is why board certification is important.
