The mission of the UW Integrated Care Training Program is to train psychiatrists and other health care
providers in evidence-based, integrated behavioral healthcare.
We are working towards a time when all Washingtonians living
with a mental health or substance use disorder have access to effective care,
where such care is provided in an integrated and patient-centered way, where no-one falls
through the cracks, and where providers can be accountable for the overall
health and well-being of the populations they serve. We believe that training
psychiatrists and other health care providers in evidence-based, integrated
behavioral health care will help us take a big step towards realizing this
goal. This vision is in line with UW School of Medicine’s goal to improve the
health of the public and with Washington State’s plan to fully integrate care
for mental health, substance use and physical health by the year 2020.
