The Doctor of Health Psychology is a professional qualification for those who wish to work as psychologists within the health field. It aims to produce health psychologists who can apply psychological research and methods to: the prevention and management of disease; the promotion and maintenance of health; the identification of psychological factors contributing to illness; and the improvement of the health care system and health policy.
The School of Psychology is currently seeking accreditation from the Australian Psychological Society (APS), and approval by the College of Clinical Psychologists for the purposes of determining eligibility for College membership, and acceptance by the NSW Psychologists Registration Board as an approved program of study.
