The section has been based in the Old Medical School in Teviot Place since the end of 2005. The research interests of the Clinical Psychology section cover the whole of the lifespan, focusing on childhood to adult and older adult mental health and emotional well being as well as the psychological impact of chronic physical ill health.
We offer a wide range of ways to study the theory, research and practice of clinical psychology, including MSc and PhD programmes, professional training programmes (DClinPsychol, MSc Applied Psychology) and continuous professional development for those working in health and mental health related services.
