Clinical neuropsychologists are specialists who understand the cognitive, emotional and behavioural effects of brain-based conditions such as dementia, stroke, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, autism-spectrum conditions, multiple sclerosis and psychiatric disorders. The Clinical Neuropsychology program is offered by Macquarie University. 


Clinical neuropsychologists provide assessments and treatment recommendations that may employ cognitive, educational, behavioural or psychosocial methods. 

Grounded in theory and practice, the Clinical Neuropsychology program at Macquarie University will provide you with the knowledge, skills and qualifications you need to work within a range of clinically oriented areas. 

Upon graduation, you'll be eligible for registration with the Psychology Board of Australia.

  • You'll have the opportunity to undertake placements conducted at the state-of-the-art Macquarie University Psychology Clinic and at Australia's only on-campus teaching hospital; and in clinical collaborations with renowned clinicians in Sydney, regional New South Wales and interstate.
