Clinical and Professional Activities
We have created this website to make it as easy as possible to collect needed information from clinical students in our program. As an APA accredited clinical psychology program, we are required to document various aspects of our program each year. Information required for APA includes a summary of the professional activities of our clinical students including degree progress, clinical training experiences and research activities. It is also important that clinical students keep an accurate record of their professional activities, particularly hours spent in clinical training, as this information is needed for pre-doctoral internship applications. It is recommended that students review requirements for internship early their graduate career by going to the APPIC website. Systematically collecting information about the professional activities of our students is also central to monitoring and improving our clinical training program. We need to review the activities of the students in our program as a whole to guide our decisions about the clinical curriculum and to meaningfully plan for the future of our program.
We require that each student complete this information on their clinical and professional activities twice a year, once in December and once in May. Data reporting periods run from May-December and from January-May. Students must complete this information no later than the last day of classes in the fall and spring semesters of each year. Students will receive an “incomplete” in Psych 733 or Psych 609/610 (first year students) until this information has been submitted. You will need to contact your instructor to have the “incomplete” grade removed from your record, so please, avoid this humiliation by simply completing the professional activities information contained on this website in a timely fashion.
Instructions for Professional/Clinical Activities Website:
It is important that when recording the clinical hours that you
comply with BGSU
definitions of Intervention, Assessment, Other, Support, and
Supervision hours we have adopted at BGSU.
Please note that categories for various types of clinical hours and information about client demographics reported for BGSU are more general than those required by APPIC for internship applications. It is strongly recommended that you do additional tracking of your clinical hours to be prepared for internship applications.
Log is available for you to record the information required on
this website throughout the semester
You do not need to use this particular document to record your clinical activities, but it is advised that you use some systematic method to track your activities so the information that you submit is accurate. Please note that this document contains detailed instructions for completing the Tracking Log in addition to the Tracking Log itself. Students are encouraged to print a copy of the Instructions and the Tracking Log so that they may track their hours regularly.Click on the link to enter your data: Report Professional Activities Information

The focus of the diversity committee is to raise awareness of the importance of diversity in the field of psychology. We aim to create an environment in the psychology department at Bowling Green State University that reflects and fosters diversity of culture, ethnicity, gender, physical ability and lifestyle orientation. To this end the diversity committee seeks to achieve the following goals.
1. Promote diversity in psychological research and clinical training and expand the curriculum to include diversity issues
- Encourage research with diverse populations through funding and other resources
- Encourage students to take courses outside of the psychology department curriculum, e.g., anthropology, sociology, ethnic studies, political science
- Encourage clinical students to develop practicum sites that cater to diverse populations
- Support and expand faculty inclusion of research articles that address minority issues in course readings
2. Develop diversity series that will bring knowledgeable speakers to the department to address diversity issues in psychology
- As part of the diversity series, develop a schedule of forums to provide department members with the opportunity to discuss diversity related issues
3. Increase minority graduate student recruitment and retention
- Be proactive in establishing contact with applicants interested in diversity in the psychology department if they are accepted in the first round of the process
- Clearly indicate on our website our commitment to addressing diversity and minority issues
- Send advertising materials to universities with large psychology departments
4. Encourage recruitment and retention of minority faculty
5. Work in conjunction with the existing university programs aimed at fostering the adjustment and academic performance of minority undergraduate students
6. Establish outside funding sources to support diversity related student activities
7. Actively engage in discussions regarding diversity issues
8. Develop resource listing of opportunities for diversity experiences in local communities, e.g., ethnic groceries and restaurants, places of worship, clubs and associations. (This is to be given to all incoming graduate students and faculty)
