Early Career Psychologist COMMITTEE

The Early Career Psychologists Committee (ECPC) of the Ohio Psychological Association represents the interests of those entering the profession of psychology within seven years of earning their doctoral degree. A primary goal for ECPC is to increase engagement and connection between early career psychologists (ECP) throughout Ohio and across areas of practice.

Our recent committee activity includes:

  • Hosting regional networking events
  • Creating an annual Outstanding ECP award
  • Developing measurement plan for OPA's strategic plan
  • Participating on the task forces for OPA's strategic plan
  • Disseminating student loan forgiveness information
  • Hosting a roundtable on career options for graduate students
  • Participating and presenting at OPA's annual convention
