We’re pleased to share the news that The Midlands Health Psychology Network will be holding its annual conference at Coventry University on March 2nd 2017. The theme will be Approaches to Wellbeing: Working Across Professional Boundaries.

Students from the MSc Health Psychology are encouraged to attend. This will be a chance to see recent graduates and other friends of the course in action, and make useful network contacts. Find out what our students have said about the experience of attending in years past.

Full-time students on MSc Health Psychology have classes Tuesdays 1-6 pm and Thursdays 1-5 pm this academic year.

Full-time students attend classes Tuesdays and Thursdays for two 11 week semesters.

Part-time students attend Tuesdays only in the first year and Thursdays only in the second year.

Full-time students use semester three to complete their dissertations. Part-time students may be working then or perhaps doing work experience towards their placement.

Details of individual classes and rooms will be available to you at induction day on 22nd September.

Looking forward to meeting you all.

Congratulations Chloe: First publication

Congratulations to our (very recent) graduate Chloe Patel who (as well as being due to graduate next week) has had her work published in the journal Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare. Chloe’s research was done in collaboration with Lou Atkinson and Ellinor Olander while she was on work experience with them at the Applied Research Centre in Health and Lifestyle Interventions. The study was an exploration of obese pregnant women’s views of being referred by their midwife to a weight management service. Chloe will be back to visit us soon as a guest speaker on our Professional Practice module.

Guest speaker: Puja Joshi on Systematic Reviews

Pleased to be welcoming another guest speaker (and recent graduate of our health psych masters) today, in M145PY Introducing Professional Practice 3.30-5.30 in JA115.

Puja Joshi, now a Research Officer with The National Children’s Bureau, will be giving a guest session on systematic reviews.  This supports your coursework assignment on the first professional practice module.  Puja will also be telling you about an opportunity to collaborate with her.  This may well take the form of writing one or more reviews.

Looking forward to seeing you later today (after your Stress, health and Illness lecture 1-3 which is just up the corridor in JA153).

Talk 11 am at this Saturday’s PG Open Day

For those of you who have already booked your place at this Saturday’s PG Open Day at Coventry University:

I will be meeting all those enquiring about the Health Psychology courses at 11 am in the Student Hub.

I will give you a personal presentation on the course and chance for questions and answers.

Looking forward to meeting you then.

Pageant of potential dissertation supervisors Thursday 17th October

DRAGONSDEN

As some of you may already know, we invite staff from the Applied Research Centre in Health & Lifestyle Interventions to visit our Professional Practice class each year to pitch research opportunities to MSc dissertation students.  This is really a two way process, in which students can suggest their own project ideas and try matching up with a supervisor, rather than simply slotting in to existing studies.  Staff from within the core health psychology teaching team will also have research opportunities available.  All students with a project supervisor from the research centre also have a second supervisor from within the core teaching team.  This is to ensure continuity and provide consistency of advice and assessment.

This year’s Pageant/Dragon’s Den will be Thursday 17th October 3.30-5.30 pm.  Room and cast to be confirmed.  No tears anticipated. Business dress optional 🙂

Success for this year’s cohort (and countdown to our newbies)

Congratulations to our MSc Health Psychology students who got their dissertation marks today. This was the last piece of assessed work on the course.

We know that some of you already have plans for your next career step, and we hope that all of you will stay in touch. Some of you have already expressed an interest in coming back as guest speakers. And for those who have been too shy to ask – don’t worry – we’ll probably email and pester you!

If you are free, we’d love you to come and meet our new cohort of students at induction day on Tuesday 24th September. The Dean’s welcome talk for new starters will be 09.30-09.45 in Charles Ward Building 215. Further details of the timetable for the day will follow soon.

Best wishes

Carol Percy
Course Director, MSc Health Psychology.
