Social Work, Mental Health, and Academic Behavioral Medicine:
A Social Justice Approach to Clinical Practice, Research, and Teaching in Graduate Medical Education
4:45 pm – 6:00 pm
Cynthia Kim, LCSW-R, Associate Program Director and Director of Behavioral Science, and
Alternate pathways for using undergraduate psychology education and experience exist in multiple professional realms. One such pathway is in using a graduate degree in social work or psychology to transform, teach, and practice in the field of academic family medicine. Family doctors are at the forefront of research and practice in the evidence base that informs integrative healthcare, providing services ranging from care coordination to mental health—all predicated on the development of trauma-informed, culturally conscious, therapeutic relationships with their patients. This talk will provide insight into a social justice pathway and mission that hopes to help transform the future of health and mental health care.
