For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via The Oxford Doctoral Course in Clinical Psychology has a long history of excellence in training people to become effective Clinical Psychologists. Trainees benefit from having access to some of the best clinical and academic resources in the country via the University of Oxford, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and other agencies and Trusts providing health and social care. Successful completion of the three-year full-time course leads to the qualification of Doctor of Clinical Psychology (DClinPsych), which is validated by the University of Oxford. This confers eligibility to apply for registration with the Health & Care Professions Council and to apply for Chartered status with the British Psychological Society. The only award that can be made is the DClinPsych, no other exit award is available. The course supports trainees in the process of becoming highly competent and flexible scientist-practitioners, who are confident in their ability to meet a range of needs in health and social care contexts. This is achieved through a research-led academic and skills training programme, high quality placements in a broad range of specialty areas and excellent research support and supervision. The philosophy of the course stems from the reflective scientist-practitioner model, and the course is committed to drawing on a range of empirically supported and grounded theoretical orientations including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapies and Systemic (Family) Therapy. Graduates from the course will be equipped to practice at a high level of research and clinical competence, and within an empirically grounded reflective and ethical framework which will provide a foundation for further learning and development. The course also prepares trainees to take leadership roles and enables them to develop the skills, competencies and meta-competencies needed to contribute to and influence services in which they work. This broad range of skills is attractive to future employers and past graduates from the Oxford course have gone on to occupy senior positions in clinical, academic and research settings. Course team members are all clinically and research active and are able to use this experience to enhance the provision of clinical psychology training at Oxford. Course staff are engaged in research in a number of areas including but not confined to anxiety disorders, clinical health psychology, CBT, Systemic/Family therapy, eating disorders, transdiagnostic psychological processes, learning disabilities, working with children, older adults, psychosis, neuropsychology/neuroscience, stigma and clinical supervision. The course is part of the Oxford Centre for Psychological Health, which also includes and integrates the Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre (OCTC) and the Oxford Health Specialist Psychological Intervention Clinic. The course also has close links with specialist mindfulness, neuropsychology and spinal cord injuries units. Trainees are given the opportunity to develop competencies in most areas of clinical psychology practice. Training takes a life-span developmental perspective. Clinical placements (generally 3 days a week throughout the three years of the course) are located throughout the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, and are allocated primarily on the basis of training needs, therefore trainees must be prepared to travel within this area. The academic programme is designed to align with clinical placements in order to enhance and enrich the learning process.
