Introducing your degree

Are you committed to being a ‘scientist-practitioner’ in order to deliver high quality services across a range of clinical settings and to further the field of clinical psychology? Our programme is firmly rooted in the core values of the NHS Constitution and has over 30 years' experience in clinical training in partnership with our local NHS Trusts and related organisations. Our graduates make a real difference to people's lives. The programme is full-time for three years and fulfils the standards of education and training required by the Health & Care Professions Council. It is also accredited by the British Psychological Society(BPS).

The overall aim of this doctorate in clinical psychology programme is to ensure that high quality clinical psychology services are made available to the public. The DClinPsych advocates the use of good case formulation and effective clinical methods with no adherence to a particular theoretical orientation. We value the concept of evidence-based practice; a large part of the teaching is cognitive-behavioural in orientation. We also value the use of evidence-generating practice. Trainees will recognise the value of the research and clinical literatures in determining the optimal treatment for the individual client, but will also acknowledge the use of psychological theory in generating new ideas when the research and clinical literatures are insufficient.
