I have been trying to do some research into what postgraduate path to take. I have two Master's degrees - Cognitive Neuroscience and Social Work - one in the UK and one just finished elsewhere in Europe. I currently work as a research support officer in a psychology-based research centre.
I am interested in pursuing Clinical Psychology or Psychotherapy and am trying to research my eligibility. However, in looking at PhDs or Professional Doctorates I get confused.
Am I right in saying that they are very similar in terms of qualifications; PhDs have a heavier focus on research and thesis; both facilitate professional, clinical practice but PhDs also offer the option of working within academia / pursuing career as a professor.
Is anyone able to tell me if this is right or any further distinctions between them?
