      Clinical Neuropsychology

      A practical and dynamic learning method

      Deusto learning model (MAUD)

      01

      Experiential context

      We know that we learn from experience. Therefore, at Deusto, our starting point is the student's previous knowledge. In the first stage, activities are aimed at exploring students’ preconceptions, significant cases and previous experiencesin relation to the subject matter addressed.

      02

      Reflective observation

      Once the previous background has been explored, it is essential to reflect and examine these ideas. Thus, the second phase focuses on activities for reflection through questioning and systematic observation .

      03

      Conceptualisation

      We compare our previous knowledge with written theory on the subject. We follow a lecture-based method (with face-to-face and online support) through supervised reading material and texts.

      04

      Active learning

      To put learning into practice , a number of practical activities are carried out. These include case studies, analysis of intervention and research projects , problem- and project-based learning, synthesis work, practical activities conducted by students in the centres, data collection and analysis.

      05

      Assessment

      Finally, the assessment process involves reflection on what the student has learned and evaluation of the work completed. Activities such as written tests, report writing and other activities are carried out.

      06

      Face-to-face and online tutorials.

      You will be supervised throughout this process. At the university there are tutorials, both face-to-face and online, aimed at supervising and monitoring work (individual and/or group).

      How is learning assessed?

      Assessment system

      • Individual practical activities in the classroom (questionnaires, solving exercises and problems, case analysis).
      • Final project.
      • Attendance register and active participation in class
      • Neuroimaging laboratorypracticals .

      Attendance to at least 80% of the classes is compulsory.

      MASTER’S FINAL PROJECT

      DEMONSTRATE WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNT

      For their Master’s Final Project (6 ECTS), students will be required to develop an individual dissertation where they should apply their theoretical-practical knowledge, their creativity and originality. It should also involve the integration of the competences previously acquired. The research topic is chosen from among those proposed by the academic staff.

      Some examples of Master's Final Project topics could be:

      • Diagnosis and treatment of cognitive impairment associated with neurological and/or psychiatric illnesses
      • Effects of cognitive rehabilitation.
      • Validation and standardisation of neuropsychological assessment tools.
