In addition, we are committed to evaluate the effectiveness of collaborative and integrated care models. Among the responsibilities of this position will be to refine and further an integrated care research program with an emphasis on dissemination and implementation research. The candidate will have the ability to work closely with faculty in the Doctorate of Behavioral Health (DBH) including psychologists, marriage and family therapists, doctors of behavioral health, allied health professionals (occupational therapist, physical therapists) and medical providers to train the integrated primary care behavioral health workforce of the future and to conduct applied behavioral health research. Additionally, the candidate will have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty in the College of Health Solutions who have complementary expertise in psychology, biomedical informatics, the science of health care delivery, nutrition, exercise science, health education and health promotion, and health coaching. Veterans are encouraged to apply.
Responsibilities for this position include research, teaching and service. Research responsibilities include sustaining an active line of research as evident by sustained extramural funding and peer-reviewed publications, and providing leadership and management to the research enterprise within the integrated behavioral health program. Teaching responsibilities include teaching graduate courses in Integrated Behavioral Health, and mentoring graduate students, and junior and clinical faculty in research. Service requirements include providing service to the program, College and University as well as to the community and profession. As part of the service requirement, the successful candidate will be asked to help expand the IBH annual Integrated Health Care Conference into a College and ASU- wide, state and regional Health and Behavior conference. The ideal candidate will present evidence of a successful history of obtaining extramural funding including NIH, CDC or other Federal funding mechanisms and/or foundation funding (e.g., Robert Wood Johnson Foundation), a strong publication record in high-impact journals, and a strong commitment to high quality teaching and graduate student mentoring.
Integrated Behavioral Health Program
The Integrated Behavioral Health Program has been in operation since 2009. We offer the following programs and concentrations:
The DBH degree prepares graduates to deliver integrated behavioral care treatment programs in primary care and other medical settings. Students can choose one of two concentrations:
The Clinical Concentration prepares licensed master’s level clinicians such as social workers, counselors, nurses and physician assistants to both provide integrated behavioral health care and design and manage programs.
The Management Concentration prepares master’s degree professionals to design, deliver and evaluate integrated behavioral health programs.
The Master of Integrated Health Care (MIHC) is designed to meet the growing market demand for professionals with the ability to manage integrated health care programs. Integrated health care programs have emerged as a key component of the Patient-Centered Primary Care Medical Home (PCPCMH) and Accountable Care Organization (ACO) models of primary care. The MIHC curriculum prepares the graduate to design, implement, and evaluate integrated health programs. The curriculum includes the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Open School online courses allowing students to earn their Basic Certificate in Quality and Safety and incorporates learning in the Triple Aim for populations, quality cost and value, leadership, and improvement capability as part of the MIHC degree.
The Integrated Behavioral Health Program operates a robust research program focused on integrated primary care, behavior in health, chronic disease, costs of care and informatics.
