University of Rochester Medical Center

 PRIMARY CARE PSYCHOLOGY POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP AVAILABLE

University of Rochester Medical Center, APA Accredited Psychology Training Program.

1-2 years, starting September 1, 2014

The University of Rochester Medical Center has trained primary care psychology fellows for 28 years.  The fellows come together for integrated care and stimulating interprofessional seminars with residents, medical fellows, and primary care faculty.  Primary Care Psychology Fellows have placements in either Pediatrics, Ob/Gyn and Fertility, or Family Medicine and Internal Medicine.  The opening this year is for the Family Medicine/Internal Medicine track.

Family Medicine / Geriatric Internal Medicine

The Family/Internal Medicine primary care psychology fellow delivers and teaches students and residents about integrated, collaborative care.  The fellow receives education and training in integrated care, family therapy, and supervision.  The rest of the time is divided between:

* Clinical service at Family Medicine–providing family-oriented behavioral health services as part of a primary care team alongside family medicine residents and faculty in an out-patient clinic. The Family Medicine Center cares for patients from the cradle to the grave, including refugees and the underserved.

* Teaching and consulting with Internal Medicine residents about the psychosocial needs of their older adult patients, as part of the innovative Hospital-to-Home program. The fellow works with a resident to follow one of his/her in-patients from discharge to home, using the experience to teach about psychosocial medicine individually and in a group setting.  There are also opportunities to learn from the psychologist faculty who do communication coaching with residents and faculty in Internal Medicine.

This fellowship is excellent for anyone wanting to train in primary care psychology and eventually work in Family Medicine, geriatrics, and/or an academic health center.
