Clinical Neuropsychology

We are one of only two UK universities offering nationally approved, professionally accredited training programmes in clinical neuropsychology. This programme combines the academic excellence of the School of Experimental Psychology with the clinical experience, knowledge and skill of a large and well-established clinical neuropsychology department within North Bristol NHS Trust, a regional neurosciences hospital that has an international reputation for excellence in neuroscience. The programme places a strong focus on patient care, diagnosis and management of a range of neurological conditions, and is delivered by academics and experienced clinicians. The Clinical Neuropsychology department offers neuropsychology services to a broad range of patient groups: paediatric and adult, acute inpatient and outpatient, as well as patients seen primarily for diagnostic assessment and patients seen for rehabilitation. Services are offered to patients who are being referred from neurosurgery, neurology, neuropsychiatry and rehabilitation medicine, as well as from physicians within the stroke services. Clinical services are also offered for specialist programmes of interventional neurosurgery, principally for epilepsy and movement disorders but also more recently for mood disorders. Along with working within the acute hospital trust, the department provides input to specialist inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services for people with acquired brain injury. All lectures are broadcast live online using Adobe Connect and can be viewed at a later date. Some units are provided in a block format of teaching (ie one unit over a single week). The others are presented as lectures on a weekly basis.

Course modules

The MSc comprises four core 30-credit units and a 60-credit dissertation. Visit our programme catalogue for full details of the structure and unit content for our MSc in Clinical Neuropsychology. (http://www.bris.ac.uk/unit-programme-catalogue/RouteStructure.jsa?byCoho...)
