The Florida State University College of Medicine Isabel Collier Read Medical Campus offers a one-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 one-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 five fellows: three are placed in the Lee Health System and two are placed at the Healthcare Network.
