What is a medical psychologists Watch

    • Thread Starter

    So lately I've been so confused as to what career I want to go into. I'm a first year psychology student ( Bsc Psychology with cognitive neuroscience) .I've been researching and stuff and I came across kings college website

    They had a Phd programme on psychological medicine. What career and what I can become with this Phd if I undertook it ? A medical psychologist ??

    There is no such title as medical psychologist. If you want to do a PhD you can go into research or become a lecturer. Alternatively if you do a clinical doctorate you can become a clinical psychologist (this is very competitive). There are other types of psychologists such as health, occupational, forensic etc that all require masters degrees.

    If you want any more specific advice just let me know
