Mental Health Fellowship
The TTUHSC Family Medicine Mental Health Fellowship Program (FMMHP) has partnered with Centers for Children and Families (Centers) to provide optimal training in psychological practices. Fellows will have the unique opportunity to train alongside primary care residents, providing integrative care to the West Texas community. Currently no West Texas primary care program trains psychologists, licensed professional counselors, or licensed clinical social workers alongside physicians. Our fellows will have the opportunity to gain the necessary clinical hours required for licensing in Texas.
