The School of Professional Psychology at Wright State University (WSU-SOPP) in Dayton, Ohio is an innovator in clinical training, having been among the nation’s first institutions to de­velop a practitioner model program and to confer the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree. We ascribe to a generalist doctoral model of training to prepare psy­chologists to meet the current and future challenges in the field. SOPP also offers emphasis areas in Child, Health/Rehabilitation/Neuropsychology, and Forensic Psychology. WSU-SOPP has continued to evolve over the years, receiving national recognition including APA’s Suinn Award and as a leader in fostering multiculturalism as a fundamental tenet of the doctoral program.
