Re: PWP Trainee Role VS MH Nurse to get to CBT Therapist Role

Yes, and you can train as an approved mental health professional, a nurse prescriber, or a nurse manager. Some nurse therapists even get to consultant grades. So I'd agree that it opens more options for career progression and security, as well as more choices of where and how to work.

Re: Cohort demographics Essex and IoP?

I'd take a look in the alternative handbook. But bear in mind that across the UK as a whole, most trainees are 20-30 (81% in 2017 intake, with very similar figures in previous years), and only 2% of trainees are over 40. That means that in each cohort of nearly 600 trainees there are only 10-15 trai...

Re: placing a future role in doctorate application

You definitely can't make it a relevant experience entry, as you haven't done it to gain any relevant experience from yet. You could mention it briefly in the main paragraph (eg "I will be starting [post] in [date] and hope that this will [one line]") but I'm not sure it would add much as you haven'...

Re: Clinical research coordinator vs research assistant

Sounds like a good question to ask at interview to me. I'd assume that the coordinator is more administrative, and therefore lower in the research hierarchy than an RA, but I don't know for sure. I'll ask on twitter.

Re: AP Interview Feedback from Employer?

Congratulations! If you want one or more of them more than the job you've been offered, or if they pay more, have a shorter commute, or there is a clear reason you think they'd be more helpful to your career trajectory they might be worth attending. But if you are happy with what you've been offered...

Re: Project Group Work Advice

I'd say you do have to give it to them. You were paid by them to develop it for them, it isn't your intellectual property it is theirs. And they can't employ an AP without a supervising CP. So I'd turn it upside down and think that they value your content enough to want to keep it, and feel like you...

Re: PhD from a Canadian University

You'll need to speak to the HCPC about whether you can gain equivalence for UK practitioner registration, and what that might involve. I don't know how it works these days, but I have definitely heard in the past of people doing supervised placements and case reports to fill in gaps in their clinica...

Re: Neuropsychology/Research

I'd think of IoP, UCL, Oxford, UEA, Manchester and Lancaster when I think of the more neuro/academic courses, but that's mostly informed by where the neuropsychs I've worked with have trained.

Re: phd to clinical doctorate

You didn't need to explain it to us again. I think we understand your thinking, but we disagree. To those of us who have completed training and/or are working in the profession, your proposal seems poorly informed and based on incorrect assumptions. You've again said something entirely contradictory...

Re: How to test animacy knowledge of young children in relation to big, blobby character costumes

I don't think any child too young to have language could have the theory of mind skills required to know there is a person inside a costume. That would require quite sophisticated understanding of reality and pretend, that isn't present at a preverbal developmental stage. So, given that they will ha...

Re: Grade classification for application

You need to submit a transcript of your module marks, and you need that to calculate your percentage score. Apart from the OU, these are supposed to be using a consistent scale across universities, but the reality is that whilst grade inflation is prolific all over, some universities are particularl...

Re: Easiest ClinPsy Docs/ Unis to get into??

We have wikis and multiple threads about similar careers that don't have the competition of the doctorate. In terms of playing the odds, applying outside of London/oxford helps, but as others have said it is more about match than probability. However, given your brief recap of your status, I'd say c...
