Clinical Psychology Doctorate (ClinPsyD)

Course Description

This programme comprises a combination of academic teaching, research and research training, and professional training during clinical placements. You complete five placements in a range of health settings in the West Midlands. We encourage an attitude of critical open-mindedness to a range of theories and models, and emphasise the importance of evidence-based practice and reflection on clinical work.

The programme is examined by continuous assessment, with students completing a series of assignments and projects over the three years.

Research, which is conducted in the second and third years of the programme, is written up for examination in the form of two papers for publication. The programme is organised on a collaborative basis with local NHS psychologists, and many local clinicians are involved in teaching.

Birmingham is one of the major centres for clinical psychology training in the UK and most graduates take up posts in NHS departments: candidates offered a place on the programme are funded by salaries provided by the NHS.

This programme is subject to a Code of Professional Conduct and Fitness to Practise regulations, to which trainees are required to sign up.
