Selected duration of study will partly depend on the clinician's level of cases eligible for the practice dimension of the QiCN.
This certificate delivers the practice dimension of the British Psychological Society Division of Neuropsychology, providing a gateway to entry on to the Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists, as equivalent to the Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology (QiCN). It offers support towards submission of your QiCN case portfolio, discussion of case formats, help in managing supervisions, discussion of patient cases and tailored support to meet specific needs and requirements. The degree is open to those who hold both a DClinPsych (or BPS-recognised equivalent) and the BPS QiCN knowledge dimension, and are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. Please note that the certificate provides support to either the paediatric or adult practice dimension. Applicants wishing to take the paediatric version must possess the paediatric knowledge dimension.
