The Division of Psychiatry and Applied Psychology offers the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology as a professional training course in clinical psychology.
This course is run in collaboration with the University of Lincoln and in partnership with the clinical psychology services of three local NHS Trusts – Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire.
The programme leads to the award of a DClinPsy doctoral degree. The purpose of the course is to train people to become skilled, clinical psychologists, eligible to be registered with the HCPC and chartered by the BPS, who are able to work effectively within the NHS and equivalent organisations.
Graduates from the course will be confident in using research methods to answer clinical questions, have organisational and service evaluation skills and be aware of priority groups within the NHS.
Successful applicants for this programme are employed by the NHS as trainee clinical psychologists and course fees are covered by the funding body.Not specified
The DClinPsy programme is competency based and conforms to the Standards for Education and Training of the Health & Care Professions Council and the accreditation criteria of the British Psychological Society. It has three main components: University-based academic teaching, service based practice learning, and clinically relevant research.
The Doctorate in Clinical Psychology is delivered on a full-time basis over three years.
University based teaching takes place over two semesters: the first (September to January) is based at the University of Lincoln (with some exceptions in the first year), the second (February to June) is based at the University of Nottingham’s School of Medicine.
Practice learning takes place throughout the year and is based at placements in services in Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. Research is conducted throughout the programme leading to the completion of a doctoral thesis at the end of the second year including a service related research project.
