Providence Medical Group – Oregon Postdoctoral Residency in Clinical Psychology with placement in Behavioral Health Integration
The Providence Medical Group – Oregon Postdoctoral Residency in Clinical Psychology with placement in Behavioral Health Integration is a part of Providence St. Joseph Healthcare Services (PSJH). PSJH 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. With ongoing Providence support the residency has grown to accommodate up to 5 residents in the program.
The primary aim of the residency program is to prepare psychologists to function effectively in integrated primary care settings as Behavioral Health Providers. Recognizing that this is an emerging and rapidly developing area of practice the program also provides psychologists with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to function in integrated care leadership roles. 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.
