Collaboration with a Family Medicine Residency Program
Extensive and ongoing collaboration with the Altru Family Medicine Residency occurs. Current Resident Physicians shadow RPIC practicum students at the partnering rural training sites. RPIC trainees are required to attend 3 behavioral science, psychiatry, or ethics talks hosted during noon conferences at the Family Medicine Residency per training year. Behavioral Science and Psychiatry talks include topics relevant to current issues in psychology and medicine with a focus on integrated care. Ethics talks typically involve case studies in primary care and psychology; a local pastor, dietician, pharmacist, and lawyer attend.
