Thanks to a generous grant from the U.S. Health and Resources Administration (HRSA), MSW students completing their clinical field placements may apply to receive a $10,000 scholarship and become an IBHC Clinical Scholar. IBHC Clinical Scholars will receive specialized training in integrated behavioral health care, specifically with medically underserved populations.
Integrated behavioral health care is an interdisciplinary, team-based approach to providing care that increases access to care and addresses health needs holistically.
Such services are desperately needed but are not widely available. It is especially important that a more diverse workforce provides these integrated behavioral health services, so that unique needs within diverse communities can be properly addressed.
Current MSW students interested in this scholarship opportunity should contact Assistant Professor Dr. Tonya Horn for more details.
