ABSTRACT

Utilizing the various stakeholders of integration of behavioral health into primary care, we will explore the decision-making process associated with initial integration of a psychologist into a family medicine residency continuity clinic. We will focus the session on the costs and benefits, as well as the barriers and future goals of integration from the viewpoint of a psychologist, clinical medical director, administrator, and family medicine resident. In addition, we will utilize the time to analyze the impact of integration on the culture and language change of our clinic's resident physicians.
