Integrated Behavioral Health Fellowship
The Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH) Fellowship is located within the General Internal Medicine (GIM) and Inpatient Medical units at Boston Medical Center. The GIM practice serves approximately 40,000 patients from diverse backgrounds with respect to country of origin, language, race, ethnicity, and insurance status. The Fellow will serve as a member of an interdisciplinary team that includes physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, nurse practitioners, clinical pharmacists, medical assistants, and patient navigators. The IBH team offers consultation and collaboration to medical providers as well as low-intensity interventions, diagnostic assessments, health behavior coaching, population-based care management, and targeted medication initiation and stabilization. By expanding the reach of behavioral health services into medical settings like primary care and inpatient medicine, IBH has the potential to reduce health disparities, particularly among individuals who have been historically underserved by the behavioral health system and/or socially marginalized. This fellowship is 65% clinical and 35% research/scholarly activity.
Clinical Supervisors: Cara Fuchs, PhD and Santia (Nina) Berberena, PsyD
