Doctor of Psychology (Clinical and Forensic Psychology)

DR-CFPSY Research Hawthorn Send me a link to this course
This higher degree by research combines intensive high-level research training in clinical psychology and training in forensic psychology by way of coursework, clinical placements and a research thesis concerned with clinical forensic psychology. The program will train highly qualified researchers and clinicians who can work in clinical and forensic psychology domains.

Prospective students may also wish to consider the Doctor of Philosophy (Clinical Psychology) (DR-PHICP) and Master of Psychology (Clinical Psychology) (MA-PSYCLP) (domestic only).

Prospective students interested in a research-only PhD in related areas (without clinical psychology training) may wish to consider the Doctor of Philosophy [Health Sciences] (DR-HTHSCI).
