Hi everyone, first time post! I came here to find out what would be the correct path to take for a doctoral studies in Clinical Neurospychology as I currently stand. I have a BA in Psychology from FIU, did several lab works as an RA during my undergraduate years, then conducted my own study afterwards as a post-bacc at a neural systems lab. I am currently now studying for an M.Ed in Applied Behavior Analysis at Arizona State University to sit for my BCBA. I am also starting to treat populations diagnosed with Autism, ADHD and other behavioral problems for my clinical experience. My question is, after I graduate from my Masters should I pursue a graduate certificate in Neurospychology before attempting to apply for Ph.d's? Or should I get some years in as a behavioral therapist first before applying? Also, I am looking for clinical trial jobs to work as a Clinical Coord./RA, should I pursue this instead? My concern is whether or not this is sufficient enough for schools. Also, my GPA during undergrad was 3.0, and I know have a 3.7 that's why I had to go for the masters. Honest answers, thanks everyone.
