The Clinical Neuropsychology program at The University of Melbourne pioneered the development of the profession in Australia. Since its inception in the 1970s, the program has emphasised a ´hands on´ clinical training. Placements cover the full range of services relevant to the practice of clinical neuropsychology, including acute care neurology and neurosurgery, psychiatry, geriatrics, rehabilitation, and paediatrics. The program enjoys an excellent international reputation, having provided training to applicants from New Zealand, South Africa, Israel, Singapore, Indonesia, Canada, United States of America, England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Columbia, and Italy. The placement experience enjoyed by our students is one of the most extensive in the world.
The core objective of the program is to provide graduates with the skills to work as professional neuropsychologists. Graduates should obtain a detailed understanding of the affective, behavioural, and cognitive manifestations of diseases of the central nervous system, particularly those affecting the brain, in adults and children. Graduates are expected to acquire competence in various approaches to the study of brain disease, including basic and applied clinical sciences, and are expected to acquire an understanding of objective assessment of the many behavioural features of brain diseases.
The program aims to provide students with the advanced skills and knowledge in neuropsychological diagnosis, treatment and clinical management of patients with disorders at the mind-brain interface. There is a strong emphasis on world-class clinical research via a rich set of collaborative relationships with neuroscience institutes across the Parkville, Eastern Hill, and Heidelberg precincts.
