Education and Training for Psychology Practice in Primary Care

Primary care psychology is the application of psychological knowledge and principles to common physical and mental health problems experienced by patients and families throughout the life span and presented in primary care. The Education Directorate is committed to promoting the education and training of primary care psychology.


The APA Education Directorate has compiled a list of doctoral, internship and postdoctoral programs that provide education and training in primary care psychology. If you are a training director and would like to have your program listed in the directory, please contact Caroline Cope.
