How do I become a clinical neuropsychologist?

Post by schizometric » Tue Jun 25, 2013 8:35 pm

Unfortunately I don't have time to synthesise the below currently, but I thought I would bring the latest consultation regarding the future of clinical neuropsychology in the UK to readers' attention, as below:

Consultation on the implementation of the competency framework for training the future UK clinical neuropsychology profession

I think the consultation exercise finished in September 2013.

Does any one know when/where the results of the decisions from the consultation are/going to be?
I am very interested to see what changes are due to be implemented.

Just wondering if anyone has managed to get any where with finding out the situation with this? I did some reading a month or so ago but couldn't establish if a plan for the future of the qualification had been established and when any changes may be put into practice? Do we have any spies on the inside?

UCL have plans for a doctorate in clinical neuropsychology within the next few years however this will not be NHS funded so expect to pay a small fortune each year if you wish to pursue this route!

Hmm... That's interesting about UCL.

I assume that there will be an update in the next DoN newsletter.

The DoN have now issued their document on the future of Clinical Neuropsychology training. Hopefully it is available online somewhere.

Am I the only person who is no more enlightened as to the future of CNP provision having read the outcome documents?

Nope. I am also confused.

Glad I'm not the only one. Seems as though a consultation was done, the results analysed and virtually no decisions made (not typical of psychology at all hahaha) - there seemed a vague nod to looking at implementing all routes - although I would see it as professional self immolation if the training was opened up to non-psychologists- the whole point of testing as a psychologist is to be able implement /utilise results in formulation and intervention which is the bread and butter of CP (and some of the other divisions); I'm not sure how other professions would be able to do that without substantial grounding in a very range of models and theories... think the BPS and DoN ought to stand ground on that one IMHO
