Verification of Training Completion

What is the best way to get a verification form completed and signed? This is the place. Please follow these steps for a seamless verification process. Please allow extra time for processing as the entire office is working remotely due to Covid-19 and we may need to make a special trip to UWMC to search our non-digital records.

  1. Fill out your form with as much information as you can, you might not have everything, just do your best. It is really helpful to provide your internship year dates and to provide the name that you were using at the time of your internship if it differs from your name.
  2. Please use Ty Lostutter, PhD, Training Director, as your contact for this form. He might not have been the director or supervisor at the time of your internship, but he is the director at this time and, typically, the person to sign off on the verification. Dr. Lostutter’s Psychologist License is PY 60238397, initial issuance was 01/15/2014.
  3. Send a digital copy of your form to psychsom@uw.edu and the program coordinator will print the form out, complete any remaining info, and prepare for Dr. Lostutter’s signature.
  4. Once the form is signed, it will be scanned and sent back to you unless otherwise requested. We are happy to send out hard copies or the original to the requesting agency if needed.
