Just want to pick the brains of people that chose a Research doctoral program in Psychology, and those that chose a Clinical/Counseling program. I find myself much more interested in research than therapy in my Clinical Psychology Master's program. If I did a Clinical PhD I would want to get involved in research afterwards. I am very interested in research and testing, and doing some therapy but not really making that my focus. I would prefer to be licensed in Psychology just so I have the flexibility in career options. Thoughts? Rationale for clinical vs. research focus?
