clinicalpsych2022_advice Posted May 27, 2022 Share Posted May 27, 2022 (edited) Hi everyone, Looking for some advice. I recently found out my research mentor at my current program (clinical psych phd, apa on contingency) is leaving the university. The only real option my program has given me is to join another lab/mentor. However, there are no other labs/mentors who do the same type of research that I am doing. I am a second year student who already has their dissertation outlined and am applying for funding. I fear if I go to a different lab I won't be able to conduct research 1) that I want to do and 2) if doing research in other fields harm me in terms of finding a job in the future. I was wondering if anyone has experience or advice on the following: having a research mentor who is not apart of the university (continue with course work and program materials at my current program but have a research mentor at a different university) transferring programs (without having to reapply, would credits transfer or would I have to start over)? Any advice or insight is greatly appreciated!!! Edited May 27, 2022 by clinicalpsych2022_advice Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
