NMSU has received funding from the Graduate Psychology Education (GPE) Program since 2004. The GPE is a program within the Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW), which is a unit within the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The overall goal of the 3 year project is to increase the number of trainees in counseling psychology (CP) who have been taught how to engage in interprofessional collaboration with mental health counseling (MHC), nursing (DNP), social work (MSW), pharmacy (PharmD) and family medicine (FM) trainees, in order to provide culturally sensitive, integrative primary care services in a medically underserved community. The expansion will include 1 pre-doctoral intern in addition to 6 CP doctoral students in an academic program (per yr.) for a total of 21 CP trainees. Read more about the program:
