Primary Care Clinical Health Psychology at either McLaren Flint or Genesys Regional Medical Center: Clinical work occurs in primary care outpatient and hospital based settings. For the primary care experiences, fellows are embedded in medical primary care residency programs (Family Medicine at McLaren and Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, & OB/GYN at Genesys). There they operate from an Integrated Primary Care (IPC) model where clinical assessments and interventions are integrated with other primary care visits with brief treatments (15-20 minutes) provided using short-term (3-4 four sessions) solution-focused and evidence based interventions. Fellows have the opportunity to conduct Chronic Pain and Geriatric Assessments (McLaren) and ADHD evaluations (Genesys) as well as performing traditional short-term outpatient psychotherapy. In addition to primary care services, fellows also provide teaching services for Orthopaedic Surgery resident physicians (McLaren site) and Gastroenterology fellows (Genesys site). Opportunities for both service delivery and medical education occur at Karmanos Cancer Institute at McLaren Flint. For hospital-based experiences, fellows provide consultation-liaison evaluations and interventions for general, surgical, and oncology medical patients. Fellows actively participate in medical education teaching of primary care residents and medical students. Fellows in the second year also supervise doctoral level practicum students.

Presenting issues are broad and span the domains of clinical health psychology and clinical psychology, exclusively within the birth to young adult population. Fellows participate in teaching pediatric residents as part of a Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics rotation, and as part of an interpersonal and communication skills curriculum.
