Diplomate Status: The Academy is often asked to verify Specialist/Diplomate Status of psychologists applying for or renewal of hospital or health facility clinical staff privileges. We provide this service. To have Specialist Status verified the Diplomate must continue to qualify by maintaining their annual membership fee with AMP, maintaining an unincumbered state psychology license, and continue to maintain their Medical Psychology Skills. Diplomates are responsible to update their data base at central office when they change address, email, or have lost or received impediments on their license to practice. Diplomates are billed for dues by email each year, and after three unsuccessful billings are sent a written notice of withdrawal of Diplomate Status. When these standards are not met we report out to facilities, “This doctor is not currently qualified as a Diplomate in the Specialty of Medical Psychology. Reinstatement requires verification of current license in good standing, updating of the psychologist’s data base, and paying up past missed dues. The board may add additional requirements such as updated Oral Examination.
