About us

Our vision

CEDAR trains tomorrow's healthcare leaders through a suite of training and education options ranging from undergraduate through docorate level degrees.

How we work

We work in partnership with the NHS and the South West Strategic Health Authority, providing increased access to on the ground training opportunities to help trainees build their skills and confidence and provide a foundation for a fulfilling career.  Through supervised work placements, trainees gain insights from leading experts in the healthcare services and valuable experience working with patients.

Many of our programmes are designed around part-time study so that trainees can accommodate training and study whilst continuing to work, which also provides the opportunity to apply what they learn immediately.

Our close relationship with the world-class Mood Disorders Centre and other leading edge research networks such as the Centre for Clinical Neuropsychology Research (CCNR) means that trainees have access to leading-edge research into mental health and opportunities to see new therapies being developed as a result of this research.  There are also opportunities to undertake internships within the Mood Disorders Centre and ACCePT Clinic, a partnership between the MDC and Devon Primary Care Trust, to gain further work experience.

We have an excellent reputation in healthcare sectors across the UK, and increasingly in international healthcare sectors, for high quality training and for producing high calibre graduates.  We work with institutions around the world to provide innovative clinical training, research new therapy methods and advise on clinical training strategies.

At present we are training 120 Masters level and 80 Doctorate PGR level clinical trainees.  In October 2012 we expanded into undergraduate training with our innovative BSc Applied Psychology (Clinical) programme.
