At graduation, you will receive a certificate and are eligible for certification by national or state agencies. Information on the various certifying agencies is supplied during the clinical year. The intern decides whether to become certified, and by which agency. Certification is a means of verifying career-entry competence; it is desirable in many job circumstances and in pursuing post-graduate education. Successful completion of a national certification exam is not required for graduation from the program. If you are from an affiliated university, you are eligible to receive a degree from that institution. The awarding of the certificate or degree is not contingent upon successfully passing a certification examination.
