I'm glad you responded!
Right now I am in a doctoral (PhD) program in Psychology. So, at the end of my training I will have a doctoral (not medical though) degree. So, if the title is what counts, i'll have it.
My idea is to work in academic/university and conduct research there as part of a lab - whether on my own or with a senior professor. It is quite a huge deal, but tipically this is what students do, at least here in the US after graduation. Others follow the post doc route and help setting up a research project for a professor who is already established and conduct their research on the side with the data that becomes available from the project.
So, I will be looking for a job that involves research ideally in an university setting. I also like the applied/clinical aspect of Psychology, so ideally the research will be in an area of clinical interest (e.g. anxiety disorders).
If you know anything about the requirements for the above in Sg, please let me know.
Otherwise, what type of certification will I need to practice strictly clincal work (e.g. counseling/therapy) there? Here, for example, I'm currently completing my internship and work in a child clinic. Then I need to take an exam and obtain Florida licence. Are there requirements along these same lines in Sg?
How about teaching jobs at the uni level? I checked out NUS website and noticed that they have a couple of lecturers for the Psych. department, which means those people are only teaching. Will my degree qualify for teaching purposes (let's say at the undergraduate level)?
I know these are a lot of questions, but I would appreciate your answers.
Glad to know you are from Florida, as well!
