PGCert Clinical Neuropsychiatry

This interdisciplinary Masters is for experienced professionals working with people with neuropsychiatric disorders associated with neurodegeneration, brain injury, and other neurological illness (principally doctors, neurologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, clinical psychologists and psychologists intending to become clinical psychologists). It is also open to psychology and other neuroscience graduates who want to develop their academic and clinical skills.

Clinical neuropsychiatry is a rapidly expanding field at the interface between neurology and psychiatry. Thanks to their unique range of skills, neuropsychiatrists are in an ideal position to diagnose and treat brain pathologies resulting in specific alterations of patients’ behaviour and cognition. Neuropsychiatry is a particularly versatile fields, as neuropsychiatric conditions encompass the whole lifespan, from neurodevelopmental disorders to neurodegenerative pathologies.

This interdisciplinary Masters programme covers all the main aspects of neuropsychiatry, from bench to bedside. Two introductory modules (Brain and Mind, Research Methods in Neuropsychiatry) allow students with different backgrounds to familiarise themselves with the basics of neuropsychiatry from a clinical and an academic perspective. The other modules focus on the most relevant neuropsychiatric conditions: epilepsy, neurodegenerative disorders (encompassing dementia and Huntington disease), Tourette syndrome, brain injury, and other common neuropsychiatric disorders (encompassing functional neurological disorder and other neuropsychiatric conditions). The MSc degree is achieved after completing a final dissertation on a neuropsychiatric topic chosen by the individual student.
