Transferring Clincial Psych Ph.D. Programs



Hi community, 

I'm a currently Ph.D. Clinical Psych student in the US and hoping to transfer programs. I was wondering if anyone knew what the process was like and if they can provide any insight. Also, if you have any info on any repercussions this may have if you leave on your own accord (rather than PI leaving, retiring, etc.), I would appreciate it.

There really isn’t any transfer process. You would have to apply again as you did the first time. Its possible that you may get some credits transferred but you are more likely to just have to start as a 1st year again. Additionally, it will be challenging to get any interviews if you don’t have the support of your current program. Clinical Psych PhD programs are not short of qualified candidates, so they would be wondering why you are transferring and what is the risk of you leaving their program prior to completion.
