Education, training and professionalisation:
The Universities in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Odense and Aalborg offer bachelor and master degrees in psychology. As part of this education, they may offer courses in Health Psychology.
After having earned a Master’s degree, a psychologist can attain public authorization by performing practical work and undergoing supervision. In addition to the Master’s degree and authorization, the Danish Psychological Association has developed a number of specialist degrees as complementary courses. The specialist degree in Health Psychology (children and adults) focuses on health promotion and psychological efforts in relation to physical illness.
