Clinical neuropsychiatry considers mental disorders from a neurological standpoint. It is an exciting and developing area of study.

You will gain training in the key scientific and clinical aspects of clinical Neuropsychiatry and related research. The course offers a strong clinical element, including practical experience of clinical assessment and management through clinical placements.
Students will have unrivalled access to international experts (both clinical and non-clinical) across the spectrum of clinical and basic sciences relevant to neuropsychiatry.

Upon completion, you will have a solid understanding of the concepts, theories and practicalities, which are relevant to clinical neuropsychiatry. The programme will prepare you for a career in neuropsychiatry, or will serve as professional development to enhance your current career as a clinician or policy maker. Other course graduates may go on to conduct further full-time study in an academic research environment (e.g. PhD) or in a taught clinical programme (e.g. Doctorate in Clinical Psychology) or gain employment in an academic, clinical or pharmaceutical organisation.
