Position Summary:

The APA Accredited Providence Medical Group – Oregon Postdoctoral Residency in Clinical Psychology with a focus on Behavioral Health Integration is a part of Providence St. Joseph Health (PSJH). Providence is a not-for-profit Catholic network of hospitals, care centers, health plans, physicians, clinics, home health care, and affiliated services guided by a Mission of caring that the Sisters of Providence began in the West nearly 160 years ago. The postdoctoral residency program was started in 2015 with two residents placed in Providence Medical Group (PMG) primary care clinics functioning as Behavioral Health Providers.

Integrated care leadership roles include program development/implementation, expansion of integrated care into health care settings beyond primary care, and development of healthcare policy related to the integration of behavioral health in general medical care settings.
