Graduate Student and Early Career Professionals Workshop Series: Private Practice

  • Duquesne University Psychology Department Rockwell Hall, 2nd Floor Conference Room Pittsburgh, PA 15282 (map)

Some of the most common questions we have received from graduate students and early career professionals are related to starting and maintaining a private practice. This forum aims to provide a comfortable and informal space to learn about experiences of local psychologists who have started individual or group practices, and for all attendees to ask any questions they may have about the process. Topics that will be covered include practical considerations (renting space, costs associated with a practice, malpractice insurance), insurance v. fee-for-service considerations, common challenges, building a clientele, and financial security. A panel of speakers with a variety of backgrounds will attend and plenty of time will be dedicated for question-and-answers. Snacks will be provided. We invite all attendees to join us afterwards for our first GPPA Social Event of the new board year at Sienna Mercato between 6-8 pm, where you will have the opportunity to spend time with our board and other GPPA members.
