hear from a usd student
I chose USD because it felt like home. My choice to pursue my doctorate in Clinical Psychology came through working as a work study in the Student Counseling Center. I saw the chance to help people and make the world a better place. Much of my work is in the area of developmental disabilities--a passion I have been able to foster at USD through many training opportunities and partnerships through the Center for Disabilities. Everyone at USD and in the Psychology department has been supportive of my goals and because of these opportunities, I know I'll have the experience I need to be an effective clinician and advocate following graduation.
