The programme 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 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.
Graduates from the programme enter the NHS as Clinical Psychologists within a chosen speciality, or academic careers.
The programme is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council and accredited by the British Psychological Society.
