I started this blog because?

I want to hold myself and other colleagues accountable for learning and implementing the material we are learning in our Post-doc Master of Science in Clinical Psychopharmacology so that we will pass the Psychopharmacology Examination for Psychologists (AKA PEP) the first go-round.

 

Here is a brief introduction to what the heck all that means!

 

A Post-doc Master of Science in Clinical Psychopharmacology is a post-doctoral degree that can only be obtained when the following prerequisites have been met:

 

Licensed clinical psychologist

BA in clinical psychology, sociology, or related field

MA in psychology (can be obtained interim)

Supervised by licensed clinician for 1500 pre-doc hours

Doctorate in psychology (Either PsyD, or PhD)

Sup. by licensed psychologist for 1500 post-doc hours

Successful passing of the National Exam

In the United States that is the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology, or EPPP

Successful passing of the State Ethical Exam

In California it is the California Psychology Supplemental Examination, or CPSE

Accepted application and initial fee to State of licensure

California Board of Psychology, or CA BOP

Preferred to be actively practicing as a psychologist

Time, dedication and money for the course work ahead

Passing of the Psychopharmacology Examination for Psychologists, the PEP

In Louisiana, it is required to become licensed as a psychologist and medical psychologist, and

Consult with a medical doctor, psychiatrist, or medical psychologist for 3 years

I hope this gives you a helpful introduction to the field of medical psychology, prescribing psychology, psychopharmacology, or otherwise known as pharmacopsychology — more on this next time!

 

Thanks for reading!

Sharing is caring,

Dr. Jen Chandler
