Advice for students considering a career in clinical science:
Here are two documents that may be useful to undergraduate students who want to know more about how best to prepare for graduate programs in clinical psychology. One is a white paper that was developed by a committee chaired by former APCS president Don Fowles. That paper provides advice about course work and other experiences that might best prepare students for graduate training.
The second document was written by Richard McFall (APCS founder and first president). His chapter provides a useful overview of various models of clinical training in this dynamic field.
Advice for current graduate students who are planning internship applications:
APCS has collaborated with the Society for a Science of Clinical Psychology (SSCP) to produce a Directory of Training Opportunities for Clinical Psychology. The directory was last updated in 2009, and it still provides a lot of unique information that is not available elsewhere, including research opportunities and training in empirically supported interventions.
