An initial flicker of interest in psychology has culminated in a Master’s degree for Jerry Wang. Now, end in sight, Jerry’s keen to continue his development into a fully-fledged clinical psychologist.
Master of Clinical Psychology
I feel privileged to be in a unique position to assist people with psychological concerns, which are often under-recognised and misunderstood in society.
When one door closes, another opens. Having previously pursued other areas of study with limited success, I belatedly discovered that I have a genuine passion for mental health.
My studies in psychology have tremendously broadened not only my understanding of others, but also of my own thoughts and actions.
The main reason I chose Master of Clinical Psychology at RMIT was because of the new Health Sciences Clinic, which provides dedicated facilities for psychology students.
The clinic offers a fantastic environment for students to hone their skills in a supervised environment with real patients – it’s challenging but also rewarding.
Although it was a minor gesture, when a client acknowledged and showed appreciation for my work, the feeling of satisfaction reaffirmed my belief that the hard work was worth it.
I am grateful for this opportunity, and I feel privileged to be in a unique position to assist people with psychological concerns, which are often under-recognised and misunderstood in society.
I've still got some way to go, but I’m beginning to see how this combination of theoretical study and practical experience fits together in the big picture that is psychology.
At this point in time, I wish simply to continue my growth, to gain the confidence and skills I need to have a fulfilling career as a capable psychologist.
