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.

Career prospects

You’ll graduate with a thorough knowledge to prepare you for a career in neuropsychiatry. But there are a wide range of other options that might suit you too.
