The Master in Child and Adult Clinical Neuropsychology trains psychologists specialized in clinical neuropsychology in response to the increasing demand for such professionals from the labour market.

The approach is fundamentally clinical, with the required theoretical knowledge, but based on the acquisition of clinical experience through practice at specific centers. This requirement to obtain crucial practical training makes this a three-year Master, in which the student, full time right from the start, takes more than 2800 hours of practice.

The small number of students allows a type of training in which teamwork, case discussion, bibliographical meetings, and papers allow for dynamic and participative learning.

The Master in Child and Adult Clinical Neuropsychology tries to consolidate team and research work by means of research credits and collaboration with the health care centers, which provide us with the pool of patients necessary for research in Clinical Neuropsychology.
