This area provides students with training opportunities in health psychology.  Primary clinical training in health psychology occurs at the Behavioral Medicine Service at the University's Health and Wellness Services. The Behavioral Medicine Service responds to referrals from University physicians. Typical referrals include headache, gastrointestinal disorders, sleep disorders, and pain syndromes.  Additional opportunities for clinical work exist at Palouse Medical, a large local medical care clinic and the Benewah Medical Center, a medical clinic located on the Coeur d’Alene Tribal Reservation.
Clinical training in health psychology is also available in Spokane, Washington.  In addition to clinical training experiences, students may be involved in research in behavioral medicine and health psychology with the faculty as well as conducting their master’s project/dissertation research in this area.
