Psychotherapist training programmes

Psychotherapist Training Programmes are professional continuing education comparable to the continuing education of healthcare professionals. Applicants to the programmes are required to have experience in working with clients in the mental health sector or corresponding experience, as well as applicable prior education in the healthcare or social care sector. After successfully completing a programme, students are granted the right to use the protected occupational title of psychotherapist by the National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health (Valvira). The programmes are jointly coordinated by the Faculty of Medicine’s Clinicum (psychiatry) and Medicum (psychology) units, which provide the training in cooperation with expert organisations from outside the University.
