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 (90%) accept programs accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) or the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) but also allow for other alternatives. Additionally, most respondents (82%) require regional accreditation of the degree granting institution. 2021 data also reveals that 64% of respondents have a residency requirement.
