Course content

Welcome to the UK’s oldest Clinical Psychology training programme. The DClinPsy programme at King’s College London trains clinical psychologists who embody the scientist-practitioner ideal, and will progress to become leaders in the NHS. The programme is underpinned by a biopsychosocial framework and emphasises the integration of theory, research and practice in all aspects of training. The programme takes cognitive-behavioural therapy as its main therapeutic modality, and has particular strengths in family therapy, mindfulness-based interventions, neuropsychology and clinical health psychology. The Doctorate is Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) approved and accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS).
