Professional Program in Neuropsychological Assessment

Post by benbrand » Wed Aug 10, 2016 6:33 pm

What's the take on this? Trying to work out if it's a waste of money. I've been living in the US and gathering clinical experience for the past 4 years to hopefully apply for 2018 entry. I'm looking for ways I can gather some sort of postgraduate experience -- technically, this is a postgraduate certificate here, in the US, but I'm unsure to whether this directly translates to a PGCert in the UK, my guess is no. Anyway, would this benefit my application in any way?

Thanks!

Maybe I've misunderstood but it looks like those courses are for post-registration professionals - does this apply to you?

The topic is certainly relevant academically, but I don't know how much clinical experience you would get on a course like this, which only the education provider can tell you.
The mind is not a book, to be opened at will and examined at leisure. Thoughts are not etched on the inside of skulls, to be perused by any invader. The mind is a complex and many layered thing.

Thanks for replying! Yeah, it's generally aimed at clinicians wanting to get continuing education credit, which is mandated once you are a practicing clinician. It doesn't apply to me necessarily, but I figured it might be of some use when applying.
