Sample Supervision Note

Supervisor Registry

The registry is a list of Oregon licensed psychologists who are available to provide supervision services to residents, with information about their training and experience in the area of supervision.  To be a supervisor need to have been licensed and in active or semi-active status for at least 2 years. A supervisor must be competent in the clinical specialty areas in which the resident will be practicing and with the populations with whom the resident will be providing psychological services.

 
Residency Overview

One year of post-doctoral supervised work experience is required for licensure as a psychologist.  Three years of post-masters supervised work experience is required for licensure as a psychologist associate.
 
BEGINNING A RESIDENCY
 
To practice in Oregon before you are licensed, you must have an approved resident contract.  Please see the FAQ below for information on exempt sites. You may submit your proposed resident contract before your application is approved, however a residency contract cannot be approved until your application for licensure has been reviewed and approved (i.e., when you are a candidate for licensure).  You may not use the title "psychologist resident"/"psychologist associate resident" or begin practicing until your resident contract has been approved by the Board.
