Description: Health care is rapidly changing. To continue delivering high-quality care in a way that meets each patient’s individual needs, Community Health Center, Inc. (CHC) has adopted a new model of team-based, integrated care in which behavioral health clinicians, primary care providers, dentists and pharmacists all work closely together, sharing the same electronic health record, working under the same roof, and often seated together in the same pod. Designated a Patient Centered Medical Home at the highest level (Level 3) by NCQA in April 2011, CHC is committed to providing effective, efficient, and elegant behavioral health care in the primary care setting. The Postdoctoral Psychology Residency program provides comprehensive training in the provision of psychological care to uninsured and underserved populations under this patient-centered medical home model, with a focus on positive client outcomes and building healthy communities. We believe this is the future of psychology and are looking forward to training the next generation of behavioral health providers in our model.

The postdoctoral resident will have the unique opportunity to:

  • Work closely with medical and dental providers as part of CHC’s model of integrated care
  • Develop clinical and assessment skills with clients of all ages in a variety of settings, including in primary care settings, licensed outpatient mental health clinics, schools and homeless and domestic violence shelters
  • Gain experience using electronic health records and other state-of-the-art technologies to manage and deliver care
  • Participate in training seminars and supervision covering individual, family and group treatment within primary care.

Location: Training sites are located across the state in Hartford, Middletown, Meriden, New Britain, New London, Danbury, Waterbury and Fairfield County.
