Background. Most previous research exploring the prevalence of Impostor Phenomenon (IP) in graduate healthcare student populations has primarily focused on medical students. The research is lacking in other graduate healthcare professions such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, speech pathology, physician assistant, and nurse practitioner. Aim. To investigate the prevalence and predictive factors of IP for graduate students enrolled in healthcare graduate programs. Method. A non-experimental, mixed methods study conducted via electronic survey, consisting of 1204 graduate students actively enrolled in a healthcare program. Descriptive statistics and frequency were calculated for each healthcare program. A logistic regression analysis was calculated across all program types for each previously identified predictive factors. Results. The frequency distributions for scoring ≥62 on the CIPS demonstrated the prevalence of IP for each healthcare program. Mean CIPS scores for nursing practitioner students (59.96), occupational therapy students (67. 39), pharmacy students (70.69), physical therapy students (68.53), physician assistant students (68.29), and speech therapy students (69.67) were determined. When examining predictive factors of IP, there was a statistically significant difference (p
