Course summary

About the course

The course supports trainees in the process of becoming highly competent and flexible scientist-practitioners, who are confident in their ability to meet a range of needs in health and social care contexts.

This is achieved through a research-led academic and skills training programme, high quality placements in a broad range of specialty areas and excellent research support and supervision. The philosophy of the course stems from the reflective scientist-practitioner model, and the course is committed to drawing on a range of empirically supported and grounded theoretical orientations including Cognitive Behavioural Therapies and Systemic (Family) Therapy. Trainees benefit from having access to some of the best clinical and academic resources in the country via the University of Oxford, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and other agencies and Trusts providing health and social care.

Graduates from the course will be equipped to practice at a high level of research and clinical competence, and within an empirically grounded reflective and ethical framework which will provide a foundation for further learning and development. The course also prepares trainees to take leadership roles and enables them to develop the skills, competencies and meta- competencies needed to contribute to and influence services in which they work. This broad range of skills is attractive to future employers and past graduates from the Oxford course have gone on to occupy senior positions in clinical, academic and research settings.

Assessment

Assessment is undertaken throughout the three years through five clinical case reports, and a research portfolio, which is, examined viva voce as detailed in the examination regulations.

Successful completion of the three-year full-time course leads to the qualification of Doctor of Clinical Psychology (DClinPsych), which is validated by the University of Oxford. This confers eligibility to apply for registration with the Health & Care Professions Council and to apply for Chartered status with the British Psychological Society. There is no part-time version of the course and the only award that can be made is the DClinPsych, no other exit award is available.
