About

The Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (ClinPsyD) at The University of Manchester is a three-year programme of academic and clinical training offered. It is the result of close collaboration between the University and clinical psychologists in north-west England.

Overview

Key facts

  • The programme at The University of Manchester aims to train practitioners who are able to fulfil the responsibilities and duties of clinical psychologists in a range of settings.
  • It is recognised that the majority of graduates will be employed within the National Health Service. The Clinical Psychology (ClinPsyD) programme is thus geared to train clinical psychologists who will be able to meet the appropriate client needs and organisational requirements of the NHS and other statutory and voluntary bodies who work in collaboration with the health service.
  • The training covers a wide geographical area, with placements at present available in many NHS Trusts throughout the north-west. 
  • The structure of the training spans both taught and research elements, with specialist teaching units co-ordinated around intensive clinical placements.

Career opportunities

  • Graduates from the programme enter the NHS as Clinical Psychologists within a chosen speciality, or academic careers.

Accreditation

The programme is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council and accredited by the British Psychological Society.

Programme Structure

Teaching is provided on:

  • common presentations and core clinical skills/issues pertaining to the four core clinical areas in Years 1 and 2 (adult, child, older adult, learning disability);
  • personal and professional development (including team working and leadership);
  • cognitive behavioural therapy;
  • psychodynamic interpersonal therapy;
  • specialist areas (eg clinical neuropsychology, application of clinical psychology in health and forensic settings);
  • diversity and engaging the community (with input from carers and service users from our Community Liaison Group);
  • research methods;
  • statistics.
