The St. Vincent’s Family Medicine Center in Jacksonville, Florida is accepting applications for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in integrated behavioral health at the St. Vincent’s Family Medicine Center beginning in September 2014.
The fellow will function as an integral part of a multidisciplinary healthcare team in a primary care setting. Primary duties will include providing diagnostic screenings, behavioral consultations and brief interventions with children, adults and families. The fellowship will consist of clinical activity, didactics, supervision, mentorship and research opportunities.

The Family Medicine Center is part of St. Vincent's Health Care System which was founded by the Daughters of Charity in 1916, as well as Ascension Health, which is the nation's largest Catholic nonprofit health system. The Family Medicine Center is a Federally Qualified Health Center which serves as a training site for medical students, MD and DO Family Medicine Residents. The health center includes Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Women’s Health, and Behavior Health Services.
