The present paper addresses the issue of transdisciplinarity in specialist training, with par-ticular attention to the field of Health Psychology. Starting from the bio-psycho-social model, strongly oriented towards the integration of the various disciplines, critical issues and possibil-ities related to the applicability of the transdisciplinary orientation in training are developed. Although the Reorganization of the Didactic Regulations of the SSUAP (i.e. Post-graduate High School in Psychological Area) of the 2019 suggests that psychological training activities should be supported by those relating to other disciplines, the proposal seems to be characterized by a multidisciplinary perspective, far from a complex, non-hierarchical, hetero-geneous, inclusive and open to unpredictable developments such as the transdisciplinary one. Teaching methodologies could constitute the field for the development of a transdisciplinary approach, representing an evolutionary opportunity from a professional point of view. The systemic, co-constructive and developmental models are the background to this training and transformation process, while laboratories and supervised professional practice could repre-sent elective places where students can experience the transdisciplinary approach, maintaining spaces for reflection and tutoring. Furthermore, the realization of events (i.e. workshops) and the development of training and research-action projects, shared between the post-graduate Health Psychology Schools promoted by Universities, can represent moments of intersection in the constitution of a train-ing network based on transdisciplinarity.

Keywords: transdisciplinarity, training: health psychology.
