Clinical Psych Job Market


Recommended Posts

What do you guys think about the job market regarding people with wither a PsyD or PhD in clinical psychology? It sounds like something I would love doing in theory, but I am just uncertain about the reality of the job market. I know most end up having their own practice (which is also what I would like to eventually do), but I am just concerned about jobs right after getting a doctoral degree.

I guess it's all relative. Compared to other psych fields, clinical could potentially have the best job prospects since you won't be limited to an academic or research job. Otherwise, APA seems fairly optimistic (and this was written mid-recession): http://www.apa.org/gradpsych/2011/03/cover-sunny.aspxas does the Bureau of Labor: http://www.bls.gov/ooh/life-physical-and-social-science/mobile/psychologists.htm
