In 1973, the PsyD degree was recognized by the Vail Conference on models of training in clinical psychology.[1] At this conference, it was argued that the field of psychology had grown to a degree warranting training persons explicitly in the clinical practice of psychology. While both the Ph.D. and Psy.D. models of training include basic science and a practical skills component, there are clear differences in relative emphases on the role of research versus clinical activity. Graduates of both training models are eligible for licensure in all states (licensing exams and renewal requirements are the same for both degrees).

In other countries, clinical psychology training has frequently been a separate qualification (e.g., Dip.Clin.Psych.) studied concurrently with a higher research degree (i.e., a masters or Ph.D.). Some universities, however, are replacing their traditional masters and diploma program with a Psy.D or D.Psych. The research component is less than a Ph.D., but greater than a masters. Thus, students considering teaching rather than practice will tend to opt for traditional Ph.D. based programs.

There is controversy regarding whether Psy.D. or Ph.D. training programs produce better clinicians. Graduates of Psy.D. programs typically spend more time in clinical placements but entrance requirements are generally lower for Psy.D. programs compared with Ph.D. programs, especially for non-university affiliated programs. Additionally, graduates of Psy.D. programs on average produce lower scores than Ph.D. graduates on licensing tests such as the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP).
