The state-recognized Master’s degree programme in general health psychology, along with a relevant undergraduate degree, allows for graduates to be general health psychologists.

As published in the Official State Gazette (BOE) of 5 October 2011, Law 33/2011 on General Public Health and specifically the 7th provision (Regulation on psychology in health care) created the profession of general health psychologist. The text designates general health psychologists as health professionals and establishes the professional health-related competencies that are applicable. Specifically, the law addresses “carrying out psychology-related research, assessments and interventions on the relevant behavioural and attitudinal aspects of people that affect the promotion and improvement of general well-being, as long as these activities do not require specialized care from other health professionals.”

In the BOE of 14 June 2013, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport published Order ECD/1070/2013 of 12 June which establishes the requirements for verifying official Master’s programmes in general health psychology that enable graduates to practice the regulated and licensed profession of general health psychologist. This order regulates the naming of the Masters’ programmes, their competencies, entry conditions, curriculums (modules and materials), and internships.

Thus, this Master’s programme is in line with Order ECD/1070/2013 and enables graduates to practice the profession of general health psychologist.
