Thursday, October 24, 2013 -

Considering applying to Ph.D. programs in Clinical Psychology?

This webinar is an opportunity to hear guidance on the application process from two faculty members from the APA-accredited Ph.D. program at Palo Alto University, and ask your own questions live in the webinar.

This webinar will be a question and answer format, addressing questions such as:

  • What makes for a strong application?
  • What types of research experience help to strengthen my application?
  • Do I need experience working with people in a clinical setting?
  • What can I expect from the interview process?
  • How important are GRE scores?
  • Should I have a faculty advisor in mind before I apply?
  • Whom should I ask to write my letters of recommendation?

 We welcome all possible prospective students who are considering a doctorate in clinical psychology to attend, and will discuss the two available routes at Palo Alto University:  Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, or M.S. in Psychology Prep for Ph.D. Program.
