Welcome to the Early Career Section!



The current Early Career Psychologist Chair is Dr. Michael Dickerson. 


A message from Dr. Dickerson:


As the early career chair for SVPA, my goal is to be able to assist connecting early career psychologists and students pursuing a career as a psychologist, with other psychologists in the community. These connections can help foster mentorship, collaboration, and networking for early career psychologists.


SVPA hosts events throughout the year specifically designed for those early in their career as psychologists. Early careers event can range from professional event such as presentation and guest lectures to casual events such as mixers, all with the intention to furthering  and broaden connections.
