Course Summary

Programme overview

Since 2010, an academic partnership between the University of Bristol and North Bristol NHS Trust has delivered professionally accredited training in clinical neuropsychology.

This certificate is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) Division of Neuropsychology and will support you in developing the practice competencies required for entry on to the Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists (SRCN). It is for applicants pursuing qualification in adult or paediatric neuropsychology.

In order to accrue relevant clinical experience, it is your responsibility to secure paid employment within a neuropsychology service during your enrolment on the certificate. It is also your responsibility to secure supervision for your work when enrolled on the course. However, we provide additional oversight and support towards developing your case portfolio and ensuring your clinical experience demonstrates the required competencies for entry to the SRCN. This support includes discussion of case formats and patient cases, and help in managing supervisions. This support is provided by clinicians with experience of conducting portfolio vivas for the Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology (QiCN).
