Hey Dear,

The eligibility criteria for Doing a diploma course in Clinical Psychology is simply a Masters in Psychology or Clinical Psychology i.e. MA or M.Sc in Clinical Psychology or Psychology with at least 50 % Marks.

But Dear there are hardly any universities in India that offer this course and moreover a mere diploma does not hold value in front of M.Phil in Clinical Psychology.

Clinical Psychology is a very extensive field where in practical skills and knowledge hold a lot of importance and hence by simply doing a diploma will not increase your credibility in the field of Clinical Psychology.

If you are very keen and passionate about doing a course in Clinical Psychology then instead of a diploma go for M.Phil in Clinical Psychology as that is a set standard for working in this field and by a simple diploma you might even find it difficult to settle with a decent job. Though in doing a Diploma Course you will have to only spend an year but if you want to do an M.Phil then you will require 2 years but dear I am very sure that it will be really beneficial and fruitful in long run and will definitely give you a successful career ahead.

So instead of doing a Diploma go for an M.Phil but also remember that the RCI or the Rehabilitation Council Of India Certification is of utmost importance now days. No matter whatever course you do in Psychology it is required to be RCI approved if you are willing to practice. Though there are many people who are practicing these days without an RCI license but after some time it will be compulsory for all to have it and if you want to practice independently as a Clinical Psychologist or an Expert in the field of Psychology then you are required to have a RCI license.

So decide and take a right decision.

Best Wishes!

Dear Friend

Clinical psychology, Medical trnascripting and drug related courses are attracting the students in many ways like placement approach, nature of job, and salary package.

Anyways chattisgarh University, Indian Academy School of Managemet Study, Bangalore, Himachal Pradesh University offer you the the professional PG.Diploma in clinical pshycology which require the basic sciences or humanities at graduation level with the good CGPA scoring.
As these organizations follow the norms of RCI which is a regulatory body to take care the academic requirement as well as implementation of course program in justified manner. So candidate must check the authenticity of host institute. What we have discussed the point at accreditation level is not end of the discussion, look at the entire course structure and see what they require from you at pre-requisite level which gives you the basic back up to understand the objectives of course work. So keep yourself ready to take up the subject based on the required inputs at subject level only then you will be enjoying the course work which is very sort tenured - two semesters or one year. At the same time you will be charged nominal tuition fee ranging in 25-30 thousands per semester. Placement scenario is also very good which gives you instant earning option in your vicinity.

Before joining such great profession you must know the role and nature where you foresee the compatibility and draw the similarity matrix based on your interest. You are advised to check the day to day working approach accordingly you have to find the required pace and only then you think about the clinical psychology.

As the course title suggests you that a clinical psychiatric plays the central role between the patient and doctor which bridge the gap of acceptance and rejection. As we know human tendency while being diagnosed with a disease and how one reacts to it. Similarly a population based case study is required about the adaptation and potential of survival either in the deceased mode or susceptible mode. It is is sensitive and challenging job to explain the situation to a patient and doctor both and managing the crisis.

I hope your intelligence mechanism will help the profession to define with the humility.
