The current European and international health environments increasingly demand more neuropsychology specialists with graduate training, qualified for survey and diagnostics, as well as rehabilitation of brain damage disorders, regardless of their causes (congenital, acquired, degenerative).
This need for trained professional neuropsychologists will increase in the next few years, which means that master's degrees in Neuropsychology are now offered by most European and Anglo-Saxon universities.
For this reason, our objective is not only to train healthcare professionals who are interested in neuropsychological clinical practice but also to promote their mobility within Europe and further afield.
It should also be noted that the current law on disabilities (Llei de Dependència) creates a need for trained neuropsychologists who, together with other experts, can carry out accurate assessments.
The master's degree is a two-year programme combining theory and practice in external practices and admission rooms for neuropsychological patiients. During the first year, the course contents focus on neuropsychological exploration and diagnosis. During the second year, the focus is on neuropsychological treatment and rehabilitation for brain damage.
At the same time, during the first two courses, we aim to reinforce students' knowledge of neuroscience and clinical practice in neurology, neurosurgery and psychiatry so as to improve their understanding of clinical practice in neuropsychology.
Even the theory component of this master's degree is geared towards practice, with contents that support and complement the practical training.
Career opportunities- Neuropsychologist specialising in neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry and internal medicine.
- Neuropsychologist specialising in healthcare resources (care homes and day centres).
- Neuropsychologist specialising in education (infants and schoolchildren's neuropsychology).
- Professional training in neuropsychological forensic examination.
All placements are mandatory, whether they are subject-specific or are taken as the practicum in clinical neuropsychology or neuropsychological rehabilitation.
The former are supervised by the course or module lecturers themselves. The latter are directly supervised by the master's degree coordinators in the Neurology Service of Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau (HSCSP), supported by those of the Neurology Service of the Hospital Institut Universitari Dexeus de Barcelona and other collaborating centres.
Students assigned to the collaborating services are supervised by a tutor of high professional prestige supported by the master's degree coordinators.
