About Our Clinical Psychopharmacology Program

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, and advocating, 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.

Degree Information

Alan Lincoln, PhD, MSCP,

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.


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

- Mark Blankenship, CSPP Alumnus

“I couldn’t have asked for more of CSPP - the training opportunities, the practicum, the number of sites that you are given access to - it really delivers in terms of the clinical training… it’s spectacular.”

- Anna Jacques

“I realized that it was the perfect place to challenge my skills and experience working with different populations - I knew that no matter where I went after - I would have experience working with several diverse populations.”

- Trisha K.
