The Oklahoma Sport Psychology Consortium is currently accredited, on contingency from the American Psychological Association (APA). This means we have two years to provide outcome data on our intern cohorts to the Commission on Accreditation (CoA) but are still considered accredited by the CoA during this two-year period.
We are also members of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC; APPIC; APPIC number: 2490)
