Doctoral Psychology Practicum Students

Counseling/Clinical Psychology Practicum Students

The Latrobe Family Medicine Residency Program welcomes doctoral level practicum students. There are a variety of opportunities available for learning about integrated health care. Each student will meet with the Director of Behavioral Sciences to develop a learning plan consistent with individual career goals. It is highly recommended that students commit to a minimum of two semesters of training to maximize learning opportunities and for continuity of care.

Some of these opportunities include:

  • Individual therapy within the family medicine outpatient office
  • Teaching family medicine residents about psychological components of patient care
  • Providing supervision to family medicine residents after reviewing recorded patient encounters
  • Providing group support to address resident wellness
  • Integrated care with family medicine physicians, residents, and other members of the team
  • Psychopharmacology training with a psychiatrist
  • Bariatric assessments
  • Outreach opportunities
  • Consultation with all members of the medical community
  • Interviewing medical students as applicants for family medicine residency
  • Residency curriculum planning (behavioral health training, community medicine, diversity)
  • Collaboration with other practicum students and doctoral level interns

Interested students should send a letter of interest, CV, and three references to: Michele Mattis, Psy.D. Michele.Mattis@Independence.Health
