A Ph.D. in clinical psychology IS a doctorate in clinical

psychology. There are two kinds of doctorates in clinical

psychology - a Ph.D. or a Psy.D. A Ph.D is a DOctorate of

Philosophy and a Psy.D. is a doctorate in psychology. A PhD can do

clinical work, and also is efficient in research. A Psy.D is geared

more toward the clinical aspect of psychology, but not the research
