Our full time behavioral medicine faculty members provide essential training throughout your three years to help you manage the psychological aspects of physical illness. Of equal importance are the self management techniques they emphasize to help you avoid overload and burnout. They see patients with you in the Family Medical Center for co-therapy in areas such as:
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Stress management
- Sexual dysfunction
- Pain management
- Psychological aspects of physical diseases, including chronic pain
Additionally, the behavioral medicine faculty consult with you on inpatients, attend behavioral medicine teaching rounds with you while you are on the family medicine service, and present family medicine behavioral medicine conferences. Once a month the behavioral medicine faculty meet with each class individually to discuss any issues and to share experiences from the past month.
