MSc health psych graduate moves on to Professional Doctorate « covhealthpsych

“Since graduating with an MSc in Health Psychology at Coventry University, I have recently joined Staffordshire University on the Professional Doctorate in Health Psychology. I am working as a Trainee Health Psychologist, based primarily on a Paediatric Burns Unit. I support young burn victims and their families through recovery and I will also be undertaking clinical work with adults with diabetes and chronic pain.

This opportunity has provided me with the chance to apply my knowledge of Health Psychology models and theories in a clinical area, allowing me to grow and develop as a Trainee Health Psychologist. During the next two years I will be working on a number of projects including psychological interventions, research and teaching.
