About Us

Scholar-Practitioner Model

The Florida School of Professional Psychology (FSPP) at Argosy University, Tampa offers Clinical Psychology programs that are grounded in theory and research while also incorporating experiential elements that allow the student to learn through classroom exercises, personal reflection and supervised field experiences. Our programs follow the scholar-practitioner model, which prepares aspiring psychologists to develop the essential knowledge, skills and attitudes required for successful clinical practice.

Whether our students’ professional emphases are assessment, intervention or other professional activities, one of the keys to their development lies in the expert support and guidance of Argosy University’s accomplished faculty. Through these relationships, students learn to apply their theoretical knowledge, implement clinical techniques and integrate research findings to enhance their abilities as clinicians. These close mentoring relationships extend beyond the classroom to collaborations on professional presentations and publications.

As a result, students have opportunities to gain experiences that will better prepare them to acquire professional licensure, maintain collaborative, working relationships with patients and colleagues, and develop a professional network.

Professionalism and Ethics

It is a fundamental requirement of FSPP that all students meet the standards of the profession of psychology. One aspect of that expectation requires that all students adhere to the principles of the American Psychological Association 2002 Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct. Not only will students be required to complete academic and clinical requirements, but they will be expected to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the profession of psychology at all times. Professional conduct includes respectful interpersonal relationships with all individuals.
