McLaren Flint is accredited by the Michigan State Medical Society Committee on CME Accreditation to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

All the recommendations involving clinical medicine in a CME activity must be based on evidence that is accepted within the profession of medicine as adequate justification for their indications and contraindications in the care of patients. All scientific research referred to, reported or used in CME in support or justification of a patient care recommendation must conform to the generally accepted standards of experimental design, data collection and analysis. Providers are not eligible for MSMS accreditation or reaccreditation if they present activities that promote recommendations, treatment or manners of practicing medicine that are not within the definition of CME, or known to have risks or dangers that outweigh the benefits known to be ineffective in the treatment of patients”.

History Of CAPT

In 1987, development began on what would soon become the Consortium for Advanced Psychology Training.  As the first APA accredited Clinical Health Psychology post-doctoral fellowship in the nation, the idea was to bring three community hospitals (Genesys, Hurley, and McLaren) together for the purpose of training psychologists in the specialty of health psychology and enhancing medical education for physicians.

Over the past 30 years, CAPT has successfully graduated over 100 fellows specializing in adult health psychology, pediatric health psychology, and rehabilitation psychology.

Fellows have gone on to take positions in medical education, rehabilitation, adult and pediatric clinical health psychology, academia, and neuropsychology.  They maintain leadership positions across the nation.

The CAPT fellowship continues to grow, recruiting new fellows every year, and strives to stay on the cutting edge of Health and Rehabilitation Psychology by breaking out of the box and going beyond traditional mental health roles.
