Our vision and Goals of Training Our vision and Goals of Training

At the end of training, UEA clinical psychology trainees should be able to draw on a broad range of psychological models, theories and research to inform their clinical work and be confident in using a variety of research methods appropriate to clinical research questions. We train clinical psychologists to be fit for purpose in the changing landscape of the NHS. This means we guide our trainees (and qualified staff) to appreciate what clinical psychology can offer in the context of multi-disciplinary work, to understand the need for leadership either directly or through influencing others and to accept that as psychologists we will frequently be called upon to make difficult decisions about the use of limited resources. To do this we encourage our trainees to use the evidence-base and to draw upon scientist-practitioner competences when the evidence-base is lacking
