In 1998, the California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) established the nation’s first Postdoctoral Master of Science in Clinical Psychopharmacology program and have been on the forefront of preparing for prescriptive authority for 20 years since. At CSPP, we prepare licensed psychologists to prescribe safely and effectively in states and federal jurisdictions where they have prescriptive authority and is just one of several compelling reasons to master psychopharmacology.

“I deliberately chose CSPP because it is a professional school, I knew I wanted to be a practitioner, and I went to Alliant for that unique model. The school provided a good balance for making you a good consumer of data and science, yet also preparing you to work as a professional.”

Degree Information


Alan Lincoln, PhD, MSCP, BCBA-D

There is a potential mounting crisis for mental health patients needing prescription drugs. In response, several groups are lobbying for psychologists with post-doctoral training in psychopharmacology to be able to prescribe medication. Proponents argue that there has never been a higher need for psychopharmacology and prescriptive authority.

Professor Alan Lincoln, PhD, MSCP, BCBA-D, is working alongside the American Psychological Association (APA) and California Psychological Association (CPA) on legislation to procure prescriptive rights for these specially trained California psychologists.

“My interest in psychopharmacology was born with my work with autistic children. I realized that I was seeing them more often than any of their other doctors, and could best evaluate the long-term effects of their medication,” said Lincoln.
