Clinical Health Psychology – at McLaren Flint:
This program is composed of four distinct rotations over the duration of two years. These rotations emphasize various skill development and are individually defined as: Medical Education/Teaching, Integrated Primary Care, Consultation Liaison, and Specialty Medicine.
Clinical work occurs in both in the primary and specialty care outpatient and hospital based settings. An additional core responsibility includes actively participating in the teaching of residents and medical students. Fellows in the second year also supervise masters level practicum students. Rounding out the experience, fellows keep a small outpatient psychotherapy caseload. Aforementioned rotation experiences are delineated below:
Though teaching is a continuous activity throughout the fellowship, during the teaching rotation fellows are provided with the opportunity for delivery of high quality medical education content. This includes providing activities such as delivering formal didactics, conducting behavioral precepting, and facilitating video review.
Integrated Primary Care
Fellows operate from an Integrated Primary Care (IPC) model where clinical assessments and interventions are integrated with other primary care visits. Brief treatments (30 minutes) are provided using short-term, solution-focused, and evidence based interventions.
For hospital based experiences, fellows provide consultation-liaison evaluations and interventions for general, surgical, and oncology medical patients. This fast paced service is provided across a 420 bed hospital and includes interdisciplinary care.
Fellows have the opportunity to participate in various groups and clinics. These experiences range from integrated cancer care with our oncology team to chronic illness groups to inpatient psychiatric care.
