Prospective applicants to graduate school in clinical #psychology face many decisions, one of the most fundamental of which is the choice of the PhD or #PsyD degree. This decision is undoubtedly influenced by the information students receive as undergraduates about the differences between these two degrees. Pomerantz and Murphy (2015) analyzed 10 undergraduate textbooks in clinical psychology for coverage of these PhD/PsyD differences. The researchers found widely varying coverage of specific PhD/PsyD distinctions. The findings suggest that educators and interested students are encouraged to make deliberate efforts to seek more comprehensive information beyond that provided in undergraduate clinical psychology texts.
