More jobs for Sports Psychologists in Malaysia

If you’re imagining days spent on a shiny black chair with a notebook and pen on your lap, facing your patient lying on a couch, here’s the truth: Less than 5% of BA graduates in psychology work in psychology-related fields. That does not mean you will never learn to read people or diagnose mental disorders. However, that’s not all you’ll learn in psychology.

To help raise sporting excellence in the country, Local public institutions of higher learning (IPTA) plans to produce more sports psychologists in the future.
This is to address the insufficient number of sports psychologists today, says Secretary-General Datuk Abdul Rahim Md. Noor of the Higher Education Ministry.    
The plan aims to ensure that each sport will have its own psychologist.
