Population Mental Health and Integrated Care Fellowship

About the Population Mental Health and Integrated Care Fellowship

The Population Mental Health and Integrated Care Fellowship offered at the UW Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is a unique opportunity to learn how to provide integrated care through delivery of consultation to non-mental health settings (such as primary care), provision of telepsychiatry, and leadership to improve systems of care.

The fellowship offers up to five positions per year. The one-year fellowship includes a combination of clinical experiences, training in integrated care implementation, and integrated care scholarship.

Patient-centered, high-quality mental health care requires providers to focus on population health. Our fellowship prepares fellows for population-based health care by providing information on health care systems, defining roles within these systems, and developing skills that contribute to better mental health outcomes.

Participants in this program will develop the skills needed to provide effective mental healthcare to a variety of populations, such as:

  • Leadership Skills
  • Understanding Health Care Systems
  • Clinical Skills 

Trainees can customize their experience and focus on specific clinical conditions or populations (such as Pediatrics or Perinatal).

Training activities will include:

  • Clinical rotations in the Collaborative Care Mmodel (CoCM) and other consultation models
  • Quality improvement (QI) rRotation and work on a QI project with mentor/supervisor
  • Telepsychiatry rotation
  • High quality online and in-person didactic series focusing on clinical skills needed to practice in Collaborative Care modelCoCM, health care systems and Implementation
  • Implementation rotation: Steps involved in implementation of Collaborative Care Model (CCM) CoCM in primary care.  Work with supervisor to implement CoCM in a primary care clinic in WA
