I'm currently planning on applying to PhD programs in clinical psychology for entry in Fall 2022, however I understand that there is extreme competition for these programs. Therefore I'm going to be applying to MS programs in clinical psychology as well. However, I'm interested specifically in clinical neuropsychology, as I have a great interest in neuroscience in general. Quite honestly, if I could get a PhD in neuroscience and still actually work with people as a clinical psychologist (obviously with all the psychological training necessary) there's a good chance that I might. That all being said, would getting a masters in neuroscience before a PhD in clinical psychology be a bad idea? Should I exclusively apply to PhD and MS in clinical psychology specifically? Or would the MS in neuroscience help for going into clinical neuropsychology? Thanks!
