How has being a P&N graduate helped shape your professional success?

My psychology courses at Duke helped me solidify my interest in clinical psychology. I wasn't sure if I wanted to go to graduate school for public health or clinical psychology, but classes like abnormal and advanced abnormal helped me decide that I wanted to at least get experience doing clinical work.

What advice would you give students in Psychology?

If you think you're interested in clinical-psychology graduate programs, get as much research experience as possible and realize that while you'll do clinical work, most of your time will be spent doing research. If you are more so interested in clinical work, explore social work and counseling programs.
