Proposed Specialty Postdoctoral Residency Competencies

The specialty specific postdoctoral residency competency documents below were submitted to the APA Commission on Accreditation (CoA) by CoS as products of a project to assist the CoA in identifying the competencies that will populate Level 3 (specialty competencies described in the Standards of Accreditation) for all CoA-recognized specialties.  The residency competencies and their essential elements developed by each specialty found in this section are proposed but not finalized.  The CoA, through an iterative process, will be reviewing and revising the submitted competencies and solicit public comment in 2019. An implementation date for the specialty specific competencies will depend upon response to public comment. The description of the process used for development of the submitted competencies by each specialty is also found in this section.
