Grants to USA and territories accredited psychology residency programs to support the training of interns, students, and post-doctoral residents in behavioral health. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to a month to finalize. The purpose of this program is to train doctoral health service psychology students, interns, and post-doctoral residents providing quality interdisciplinary, integrated behavioral health including but not limited to Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) and other Substance Use Disorders (SUD) into community-based primary care settings in high need and high demand areas. The program also supports faculty development of health service psychologists.

Through these efforts, the GPE Program transforms clinical training environments and is aligned with HRSA’s mission to improve health and achieve health equity through access to quality services, a skilled workforce, and innovative programs.

The GPE Program objectives are to:

  • Improve access to quality behavioral health, including trauma-informed care, by increasing the number of doctoral health service psychology graduates; Demonstrate an ability to recruit and place the doctoral health service psychology students, interns, and post-doctoral residents in experiential training sites that provide integrated, interdisciplinary behavioral health for placement into community-based primary care settings in high need and high demand areas with two (2) or more health disciplines other than psychology, and also ensure at least twenty-five (25) percent of the time in the experiential training site(s) is in the delivery of OUD and other SUD prevention, treatment, and recovery services;
  • Demonstrate enhanced didactic and experiential training activities to develop competencies of doctoral health service psychology students, interns, and postdoctoral residents in integrated, interdisciplinary (in collaboration with two (2) or more health disciplines) team based care to address the social determinants of health (SDOH), provider resiliency, trauma-informed care, OUD and other SUD, and other behavioral health concerns;
  • Establish or enhance academic and community partnerships for the development of experiential training sites, settings may include but are not limited to academic, K-12 schools, gerontology, criminal justice, and community health centers to create a pipeline of well-trained, culturally responsive health servicepsychologists, who are committed to working in high need and high demand areas following graduation;
  • Promote technology integration in the provision of psychological services and training programs, including utilizing tele-behavioral health services, offering options for distance learning to improve access to health services and improved patient outcomes; and
  • Enhance faculty development and training program content that includes incorporating a holistic review strategy that assesses an individual’s SDOH health factors alongside traditional mechanisms of providing behavior health services in the provision of OUD and other SUD prevention, treatment, and recovery tele-behavioral health services, and other relevant trainings such as provider resiliency, culturally appropriate service delivery, and trauma informed care.
