In order to practice independently as a psychologist in the U.S. and Canada, the prevailing standard is that a psychologist must have obtained a doctoral degree in psychology. The majority of respondents (91%) accept programs accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) or the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) but also allow for other alternatives. Additionally, most respondents (91%) require regional accreditation of the degree-granting institution. 2020 data also reveals a little over half of respondents (58%) have a residency requirement.
