Integrated Care Pathway

The Integrated Care Pathway (ICP) is a program within the Division of Population Health of the University of Washington Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. This career development pathway for psychiatry residents, one of the first of its kind, provides a rich array of experiences to learn about integrated care and to develop unique clinical skills. Read more about how ICP is helping to prepare residents for the future of psychiatry.
 
ICP hosts regular lunchtime meetings in which a faculty member leads a discussion about an aspect of integrated care, particularly in terms of career opportunities. Previously ICP hosted a journal club, in which a faculty member facilitated discussion of a journal article representing the broad array of opportunities in integrated care careers. Residents can participate in the Collaborative Care rotation, offering clinical and research opportunities in integrated care. Residents may also apply for the Area of Distinction Program in Integrated Care, formally recognizing their participation in the Integrated Care Pathway. A periodic newsletter features items of interest related to integrated care, a featured faculty member, and details of upcoming meetings. 
 
Anna Ratzliff, MD, PhD and Amy Bauer, MD, MS co-lead the ICP. The program was awarded the 2016 Alan Stoudemire Award for Innovation and Excellence in Psychosomatic Medicine Education by the Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine (APM) on behalf of the Fellowship and Awards Committee. In this podcast, APM president Bob Boland speaks with Anna about her work developing the Integrated Care Pathway.
