    I'm a psychology undergrad with an emphasis in neuroscience and I want to pursue a Ph.D. in clinical neuropsychology, though currently I'm looking at various masters programs to help me eventually get into a program. I'm having a hard time finding a solid research psychology masters, so I began wondering, would a masters in neuroscience also provide the research I need? I may be completely off, I just wanted to check

    A lot of these tend to be in more basic (vs. clinical) research, which isn't necessarily irrelevant, but less ideal given the skillset they're looking for in clinical psychology programs.

    But your best bet is to get an RA job in a neuropsychology lab. Not only is the work most apposite, you'll make connections with actual neuropsychologists, which could help you during admissions and beyond. Also, you'll be making a bit of money, likely more than your future graduate stipend... :/

    Thank you! This really helps clarify things. I've been leaning towards the RA route, especially with the "I can be paid" vs "I have to pay you."
