Primary Care and Psychology
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
About the special issue
In this special issue on Primary Care and Psychology, each article is written collaboratively by at least one psychologist and one primary care physician.
This special issue is designed to help psychologists learn about the fundamental changes occurring in primary care and the opportunities these changes are producing. It describes the most common emerging models of integrated primary care, the roles of psychologists within those models, and how certain important subsets of patients are cared for in primary care.
The authors of these articles describe what psychologists actually do — what it is like to be a psychologist in these primary care settings.
