The Doctorate in Clinical Psychology Programme

The Doctorate in Clinical Psychology Programme in Plymouth is nationally recognised for its innovative approach to teaching and learning, training for values based and reflective practice, and for its critical approach to psychological knowledge. It strives to deliver high quality clinical training in the South West Peninsula Region. Service receiver participation is fully embedded in all aspects of programme delivery. The Health and Care Professions Council have approved the programme in 2018 and it was successfully re-accredited by the British Psychological Society in 2017 with a number of commendations. The Programme had an annual intake of 11 trainees for 2018, with 35 trainees enrolled in total for 2018-19.  In 2019, a new Masters in Clinical Psychology will be launched, and it is anticipated that these posts will support and shape that development in line with national and local strategies for developing a mental health workforce.
