Description:
This article is the second in a series of articles relating to successfully applying for Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (D. Psych. Sc.1) programmes. The paper profiles the qualifications, experiences and perceived competencies of clinical trainees at the point of entry into training. Cohorts from the four D. Psych. Sc. programmes in the Republic Ireland over the 10- year period 2000-2009 were approached and 130 participants completed a questionnaire investigating their history of applications, their academic qualifications, their research, clinical and training experiences and their perceived competencies. Findings indicated that successful applicants to D. Psych. Sc. programmes shared a largely similar profile of academic, research, clinical and personal competencies.
