Five Psychology Professional Development Websites Worth Bookmarking

Posted on Updated on

Student Doctor Network. While much of this site is focused on Medical School, you can skip straight to the psychology forums. There you will find a wealth of information from other students and applicants about their experiences finding practicum sites, applying to doctoral programs, taking the GRE, the APPIC internship process, and much much more. Anything in this epic process that you’re interested in learning more about (or has you stressed out!) has probably been posted about by someone who is going through what you’re going through so take a look and see what others are saying! http://forums.studentdoctor.net/forums/psychology-psy-d-ph-d.57/ and http://forums.studentdoctor.net/forums/mental-health-and-social-welfare.207/
