Literature pertaining to the development of professional identity in clinical psychologists and other health professionals is reviewed. Particular attention is given to studies of professional identity using repertory grid methodology. Other factors of personality, preference for theoretical orientation and factors that influence clinical practice that were found to be relevant to a clinical psychologist's professional identity are also examined. Findings are summarised and discussed in terms of external and internal factors influencing professional identity.
