Introduction to research on the doctoral programme Introduction to research on the doctoral programme

Research is very highly valued at the University of East Anglia and we aim to provide a research environment which is encouraging and testing. Our aim amongst the clinical psychology group (staff and trainees) is to conduct research which complements clinical work, which informs and enhances clinical skills, which is theoretically based, and which contributes to the development of health service practice and/or policy. We aim to train clinical psychologists in critical evaluation of research, in summarising and integrating research findings, and in drawing out the clinical implications of research. We particularly welcome applicants with a strong interest in research and those who want to develop a clinical research career. Therefore accepting a place at the University of East Anglia means that you must be willing to commit yourself to undertake research at a high standard and expect to publish the research that you complete.
