Re: Balancing paid work with doctoral work on a health docto

If this is the case how do they make enough to live just working part time? Hey, I worked part time as a research fellow specialising in dementia three days a week and combined this with paid lecturing in health psychology (or paid adhoc research assistant interview work). I also worked one day a w...

Re: Health psychology questions

Hey, Feel free to send PMs if you're interested in the health psychology career pathway. Happy to help. Professional Doctorates in Health Psychology are self funded, but trainees typically work in paid full time (or part time) placements and pay for fees via salaries. From my understanding, there's ...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. Really excited about my two new trainee health psychology placements. Both involve almost all direct client work within two different NHS services (chronic pain and neuropsychology), alongside clinical/counselling psychologists. Lots of new exciting challenges and slight departure from my researc...

Re: Reflections on 4th application and not on training

Have people had feedback on interviews yet? And if so, has it been helpful? My Lancaster feedback was "Ok" but was quite generic (after comparing it to others who had feedback from Lancaster). I am due to hear in June/July about Liverpool and Glasgow. I hope all are well! 'Ski Hey Ski, Sadly, I'm o...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

Thanks Random and Monroe :) I leave the UK for Australia in the next few weeks. I'm in the middle of applying for a new passport (with my Dr title!), visas and insurance forms.

Re: Reserve lists

Herts interview list has moved by one place (moved four places in total by the looks of things!) I really don't think it will move enough for me, so focusing on my remaining interviews. Best of luck :)

I know it's probably rather limited in the grander scheme of things, but sending you lots of virtual heartfelt hugs. I'm certainly no stranger to heartbreak and reaching out to you t...
