Hello, I am LaPearl Logan Winfrey, PhD, Dean of the School of Professional Psychology (SOPP) at Wright State University. We are home to an APA accredited PsyD program as well as an APA accredited Doctoral Internship. Welcome to the SOPP Website.
The brilliance, expertise, and richness of our School continues to allow the SOPP faculty, staff and students to lead by example in the community, the state of Ohio and nationally. Today, we have more than 800 graduates practicing worldwide.
Since 1979, The SOPP has been known for readying its graduates for excellence and innovation in the practice of professional psychology. Many of our faculty and students continue to receive prestigious awards for their innovative research and ground-breaking clinical programs by using the School's training in diversity as a leading model for understanding others and oneself.
The PsyD and Internship programs have enjoyed the highest level of accreditation since 1982, the year of our first graduating class. We are very proud to have a 100% internship match rate for 4 of the last 5 years, 98% overall during this period. This is a significant accomplishment given historical imbalances in students and openings. We are also excited about the globalization of our curriculum with recent faculty-led programs to Bolivia, India, and South Africa.
We invite you to research our programs. Please begin by taking a few moments to read about the PsyD program, doctoral internship, faculty research and giving opportunities located throughout the SOPP website. And please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
