Specialisation Training in Clinical Health Psychology, 70 ECTS credits

The application period for the Specialisation Training in Clinical Health Psychology has been extended to 21 June 2016.

A legislation reform that went into effect at the beginning of 2015 and aims at the development of top expertise and specialisation at universities and universities of applied sciences. Specialisation training workshops are a new form of education that strengthens the professional development of experts who operate in working life.

Clinical Health Psychology is one of the fastest developing application areas of psychology. The study programme offers students with both theoretical and clinical expert competencies to act in patient and customer work in various health care operating environments such as basic health care, general and psychiatric hospitals, occupational health care and units that provide rehabilitation. The focus areas of the study programme are health psychology, the promotion of health in various contexts and the current application areas of health psychology (stress and sleep, nutritional psychology, pain).

The extent of the Specialisation Training in Clinical Health Psychology is 70 ECTS credits and it can be completed in three years alongside ongoing employment. Renewed education no longer leads to a licentiate degree. The training is subject to a fee, which is EUR 120/ECTS credit. The training fee is paid in instalments to the University of Eastern Finland.

The application instructions, admission criteria and application form for the Specialisation Training in Clinical Health Psychology in 2016 are available on this page. Copies of degree certificates, certificates of continuing professional education, and certificates of employment are attached electronically to the application form.
