Oregon Forensic Evaluator Certification

Beginning January 1, 2012, psychologists and psychiatrists who conduct forensic evaluations regarding ability to aid and assist and guilty except insanity, will need to be certified by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA). Certification requires completion of an application, a $250 fee, attending the initial two-day Oregon Forensic Evaluator Training Program and passing a written test, and submission of 2-3 competency and criminal responsibility evaluations for the Review Panel to examine and provide comment. Once certified, forensic examiners must apply for re-certification every 2 years. Recertification entails a $250 fee, submission of 2-3 evaluations for review, and attendance at the one day recertification training. If you are interested in learning more about the certification process, please visit the OHA website. You can also contact us with questions.

Dr. Guyton is the Director of the Oregon Forensic Evaluator Training Program. She and Dr. Millkey serve as training faculty along with a group of other attorneys, psychologists, and a psychiatrist. Follow this link for a complete list of our training faculty. Initial trainings are typically scheduled 2-3 times a year.

 COLLOQUIA (CONTINUING EDUCATION)

Northwest Forensic Institute strives to heighten the standards of forensic mental health by providing local trainings with international experts at least twice a year. However, we are not offering colloquia currently due to the amount of time we are spending with the Oregon Forensic Evaluator Training Program initial and recertification trainings.

We invite mental health, medical, and legal professionals and those in training within these respective disciplines to attend our colloquiua. If you would like to be notified of upcoming trainings, please email us at admin@nwforensic.org and ask to join the mailing list.
