The Florida State University College of Medicine Isabel Collier Read Medical Campus offers a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in Clinical Health Psychology with a focus on Primary Care.

The ICR Postdoctoral Health Psychology Consortium is focused on the training and development of psychologists to work in primary care settings. The two-year training program follows a biopsychosocial model thus focusing on the interaction of biological, psychosocial and medico-legal variables. Fellows will develop skills to function as an integrated member of a primary care team and will gain experience in assessment and intervention approaches within the primary care structure. The program trains six fellows: three are placed in the Lee Health System and three are placed at the Healthcare Network.
