We are proud to announce that our Clinical Psychology program has once again received a Graduate Psychology Education Preparation Grant (Total Direct and Indirect Costs: $921, 037; 2016-2019).
Congratulations to Primary Investigator Dr. Susan Keane and Co-Investigators Drs. Rosemery Nelson-Gray, Gabriela Stein, and Blair Wisco on this accomplishment. The project concerns “Behavioral Health/Primary Care Integration: Reducing Barriers to Care in Underserved Populations” and it prepares doctoral students for careers as behavioral health specialists in primary care settings.
Over 24 doctoral trainees will participate in experiential opportunities in one of 6 primary care locations that focus on underserved and/or vulnerable groups (e.g., socioeconomically deprived; linguistically diverse; veterans). This opportunity will increase workforce development in this critical area and also provide top-of-the-line training for our graduate students.
