Magnolia Scholars

The Magnolia Scholars program in Integrated Behavioral Healthcare is a clinical training program funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Behavioral Health Workforce and Education Training program (BHWET). Magnolia provides specialty training in integrated behavioral healthcare to select doctoral-level psychology students at UMMC across four clinics that integrate medical and behavioral care and range from primary to specialty settings (CAY Clinic, UMMC High Risk Follow-up Clinic, Children’s Cancer Clinic, and Batson’s Kids Clinic). Magnolia scholars provide brief consultation and intervention to providers and families seen at the Batson Kids Clinic. Other sites provide integrated care services alongside licensed psychologist faculty in the assessment and intervention of mental health needs in the respective clinics. Some telehealth services are available. Magnolia clinician scholars are competitively selected from PhD programs in clinical, counseling, and educational psychology for this 6-12 month intensive training program dedicated to serving children and families from underserved or rural Mississippi.
