Predoctoral Residency Program

The mission of our Predoctoral Residency/Internship Program is to train future psychologists in the primary care behavioral health (PCBH) model with a focus on an underserved and diverse populations.

Post-Graduate Fellowship

Our PCBH Fellowship Program is an integrated primary care fellowship with specific focuses on preparing fellows to practice PCBH in underserved and diverse populations, serve as Behavioral Scientists in a family medicine residency, and grow as contextual leaders in healthcare.

How our PCBH Training Programs Work

Operating as behavioral health consultants (BHCs) via the Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) model, predoctoral interns and postgraduate fellows will work alongside medical professionals and trainees to provide patients holistic care. Interns and fellows will have the opportunity to work with patients of all ages and of diverse backgrounds who present to the clinics with a variety of health conditions.
