October 10, 2018

The Department of Health, Health Systems Quality Assurance, is accepting applications to fill two professional member vacancies on the Examining Board of Psychology (board). We are looking for public-spirited people willing to study the issues and to make decisions in the public’s best interest.

We seek diversity in board and commission members. We recognize the value variety brings in understanding and serving the people of Washington State. We seek candidates with diverse backgrounds and those who provide geographic representation throughout the state.

The board consists of nine members, seven professional members (licensed psychologists) and two public members, appointed by the Governor. Professional members must, at the time of appointment, be a citizen of the United States who has actively practiced psychology in the state of Washington for at least three years immediately preceding appointment and who is currently licensed as a psychologist by the state of Washington.

The board meets six times a year for regular board meetings and occasionally for special board meetings. Historically, regular board meetings have been scheduled on a Friday in the months of January, March, May, July, September, and November. The board operates under legislative mandate to protect the health and safety of the public, and to promote the welfare of the state by regulating the competency and quality of health care providers under its jurisdiction.

If you are interested in applying for an appointment to the board, please go to our website and complete the application online at: doh.wa.gov/AboutUs/ProgramsandServices/BoardsandCommissions.aspx.

Applications, along with a current resume must be submitted by November 30, 2018.

We appreciate your consideration of this request. If you have any questions about serving on the board, please contact me at 360-236-2813 or at Stacey.saunders@doh.wa.gov.
