About

This exciting and developing Clinical Neuropsychiatry area looks at mental disorders from a neurological perspective. At King’s College London, our clinical and academic experts will help you get up to speed with the latest thinking in the field.   

Overview

Clinical neuropsychiatry involves an exciting mix of scientific and clinical work. Because of the varied nature of the subject, it’s suitable for people from a range of backgrounds, whether you’ve just graduated from biomedical sciences or psychology, or you’re already working as a psychologist, psychiatrist, neurologist or other health professional. 

As part of the  Clinical Neuropsychiatry course at King's College London, you’ll also have the chance to gain hands-on clinical experience. Because of our extensive links, we’re able to offer placements working in memory clinics, brain injury rehab, outpatient services and more.
