Integrated Primary Care Setting
The first track is the primary care track which will encompass working in various Primary Care/Family Medicine Clinics within our North Country clinics. These clinics have a variety of patient populations served including pediatric, adult, to geriatric and vary in severity of illness. We also serve many Hispanic migrant farmworkers as well as seasonal farmworkers.
Residents will serve as Integrated Behavioral Health Consultants within a rural primary care setting and will be called upon by providers to assess and treat patients presenting with behavioral concerns during primary care office visits. Residents will treat behavioral health concerns and expand their skill sets to a broad scope of health-related issues with psychological issues driving them, including chronic disease management and wellness. Residents will work as a member of the primary care team and will provide on the fly recommendations to medical providers and to patients. Residents will learn pain management principles, Suboxone management, Migrant/Seasonal Farmworker issues, capacity evaluations, be able to attend mental health court and much more. 2 Post-Doctoral Residents will be placed within this track.
