Skills and Training



City University’s Professional Doctorate in Health Psychology will develop trainees’ practical skills and ability to integrate theory into practice. The training aims to develop candidates into independent and self-critical learners. The trainee will learn to become capable of supporting the learning of others, leading and working effectively in groups, using a wide range of learning resources, undertaking innovative research tasks, communicating complex or contentious information clearly and effectively to specialists and non-specialists and acting as an effective consultant.

At the end of the training, the trainee will be able to work independently and ethically in all of the registered health psychologist core competencies and continue with their own professional development.

Health Psychology Practice

A key component of the training programme is a period of two years full-time supervised practice in health psychology, working with a minimum of two client groups such as patients/clients, healthcare professionals, healthcare managers, health policy makers, adults or children. It is the trainee's responsibility to make suitable arrangements to work as a Trainee Health Psychologist for 2 years full-time (5 day working week for 46 weeks a year). This includes time dedicated to continuous professional development and study days. The health psychology practice may be in paid employment, voluntary work or a placement in which the trainee negotiates with an organisation to practice their skills.

Research Areas

Trainees are required to demonstrate evidence of competency in five units: Generic Professional Skills; Research; Consultancy; Teaching and Training, Delivering Behaviour Change Interventions. Trainees are expected to read the BPS Qualification in Health Psychology (Stage 2) Candidate Handbook before starting the training. The programme places an emphasis on the quality of competence in the units, to ensure that trainees are ready to work to a high professional standard in a competitive health-related job market.
