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 which has an international reputation for excellence in neuroscience. The programme places a strong focus on patient care, and the diagnosis and management of a range of neurological conditions, and is delivered by academics and experienced clinicians. Neuropsychology services are offered 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 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. As well as 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), while others are delivered on a weekly basis.

Course modules

The programme content is primarily guided by the British Psychological Society (BPS) syllabus and guidelines for training in clinical neuropsychology. The diploma includes four distinct units, which are taught within the University of Bristol and North Bristol NHS Trust. Each of the four units is divided into two components.
