Psychology interns on a consultation-liaison service.

Abstract

This paper develops a rationale for training psychology interns on a consultation-liaison service to deal with the psychologic problems of medically ill patients and to work with their health care providers. General and specific goals are delineated to summarize training objectives for these interns at the end of three and six months on the service. The overall objective of the service in offering such a program is to train psychologists to feel competent and comfortable in meeting the psychologic needs of the medically ill. The service seeks to train psychologists primarily as clinicians and secondarily as researchers in the health care area.
