Clinical neuropsychology is a field which applies an understanding of the neural basis of cognition, behaviour and emotion to the assessment and treatment of adults and children with neurological disorders. Courses prepare students for careers in a broad range of settings, including in acute hospitals, rehabilitation centres, aged care programs, psychiatric settings, paediatric facilities and private practice. Training in clinical neuropsychology is extended through specialisation in a choice of areas, including rehabilitation, child and adolescent neuropsychology, geriatric neuropsychology, psychiatric neuropsychology and forensic psychology.
