On the process and outcome of graduate training in clinical psychology: where do we want to go, how will we get there, and who will join us?
The study by Hardi et al. (this issue) follows a tradition of evaluating clinical Ph.D. programs by the number of graduates engaged in clinical versus research activities. The separation of outcomes into these two categories reflects difficulty in the field defining meaningful integrations of science and practice. We suggest that this difficulty arises regularly in the experiences of clinical graduate students, and that the process of graduate education is ripe for systematic study. An analogy is drawn between psychotherapy research and graduate training leading to a focus on links between individual student and program differences, educational processes, and varieties of educational outcomes.
