The Scientist–Practitioner Model, also called the Boulder Model, is a training model for graduate programs that aspires to train psychologists with a foundation of research and scientific practice. It was developed primarily to guide clinical psychology training programs accredited by the American Psychological Association, but was adopted by other specialties. According to this model, a psychologist should be a competent scientist and researcher, applying that knowledge and those techniques in treating clients.
