Research Training on the Doctoral Programme Research Training on the Doctoral Programme

Research in Clinical Psychology is an essential part of professional practice. Applied clinical research is a key part of the Programme and constitutes around half of the content of training, teaching and study. Trainee clinical psychologists are postgraduate research (PGR) students at the University.  Practicing clinical psychologists are expected to remain appraised of the most recent and relevant clinical research, as well as adding to the evidence-base and applying a critical understanding of psychological research methods and models across both clinical and research activities. As such, we are both critical consumers and producers of research. The 2 main research activities within the doctoral programme are the Doctoral Research Thesis, and the Service Related Project (SRP).
