(Student Profile)

Dr Nishalie Fernando

Studying for the MSc in Child and Adolescent Mental Health we were exposed to some of the best evidence based therapies via lectures, seminars and attachments at the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. I gained greater insight into data analysis, interpreting statistical information, relevant computer packages and most importantly analytical skills to critically evaluate the evidence base on a given topic. These skills have been of immense benefit to me in my current teaching, clinical and research work; where I have been able to translate new skills gained at King’s into effective practice.
