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. A Resident Supervision Contract is for those who have not already completed the post-degree experience requirement.
BEGINNING A RESIDENCY
To begin your residency in Oregon, 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 begin practicing or use the title "psychologist resident"/"psychologist associate resident" until your resident contract has been approved by the Board.

Request to Extend Residency Supervision Contract
