New rehabilitation specialty guidelines

New guidelines for postdoctoral rehabilitation specialty training programs.
New guidelines for postdoctoral rehabilitation specialty training were released this spring. This document, available from the Council of Specialties in Professional Psychology will inform CoA’s reviews of rehabilitation postdoctoral residency programs starting in 2015. Each existing rehabilitation program accredited by CoA will be asked this fall to submit a plan and timeline for making the necessary adjustments towards meeting the new guidelines. Applicant programs that have submitted self-studies will also be asked to provide plans and implementation timelines. Applications received by the office this fall will be notified of the guidelines and asked to provide a response as part of the preliminary review process. All programs will be expected to have transitioned no later than Jan. 1, 2015.
