How Our Behavioral Health Programs Work

Operating as behavioral health consultants (BHCs) via the Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) model, predoctoral interns and postdoctoral 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.
