The current Clinical Health Psychology postdoctoral fellows at Tripler Army Medical Center (TAMC) will present on several different topics involved in the training program. Health Psychology fellows are well integrated into the clinical management of patients at TAMC and actively participate in several multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary teams. We will talk about different roles that we as health psychologists play in medical settings based on the nature and the need of each team.
We will also discuss our roles in several different pre-surgical evaluations. Briefly, we will explain our training for the Master’s Degree in Psychopharmacology through the University of Hawai`i at Hilo.
We will end with a case example of a typical patient seen in the medical setting and address how we would treat that patient through the lens of a Health Psychologist.
