It has been extremely beneficial to learn more about the field of Clinical Psychology and take part in on-going research at the graduate level. It has also been exciting to learn more about disorders such as Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, Major Depressive Disorder, and Borderline Personality Disorder. This experience has helped me better understand the work I want to do and helped me carve out my next steps towards getting a graduate degree.
What I wish was different
There is no rush in getting your graduate degree! Take some time to explore your field of study- whether it be through volunteering, internships, or jobs- and see what the work is all about. It will for sure help you decide if you are passionate about the field and the work, and it's great experience to have when applying for graduate programs.
