The UCI School of Medicine Train New Trainers (TNT) Primary Care Psychiatry (PCP) Fellowship is a year-long clinical education program for primary care-oriented trainees and providers who wish to receive advanced training in primary care psychiatry. Primary care psychiatry is targeted at the most frequently encountered mental health-related disorders and treatments. We train primary care providers to:

  • Recognize symptoms of common mild to moderate psychiatric conditions
  • Complete a quick and targeted assessment
  • Provide evidence-based treatment using cognitive therapy techniques, motivational interviewing and appropriate medication

Mentorship and Teaching

The primary goal of the TNT PCP fellowship is to provide mentorship and teaching skills in the area of primary care psychiatry. Trainees will learn:

  • How to complete an evidence-based and efficient psychiatric interview in the busy primary care or medical setting
  • How to effectively diagnose and treat commonly encountered psychiatric conditions such as mood, anxiety, psychotic and substance misuse disorders
  • How to teach these principles to their primary care colleagues

Note that this is not a traditional or Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-approved fellowship.
