Successful Journey onto the DClinPsy Programme at University of Bath
In this episode, we talk to Ben Kwapong about the early stages of the clinical psychology DClin programme. As a first year Clinical Psychology trainee at University of Bath, Ben draws upon his success in the context of underrepresentation of black men within the profession.
“I think where I’ve seen a real barrier was probably at interview stage. Perhaps not having someone who looked like me on the panel – that could add to the nerves, possibly.”
