Saint Louis University receives $1.9M grant to train medical residents, therapy students

Saint Louis University received a five-year, $1.87 million grant to strengthen its behavioral health training for family physicians and medical family therapists programs, according to St. Louis Business Journal.

The Primary Care Training and Enhancement Award grant was given to the university by the state-run health and resources administration.

The Family Medicine Behavioral Health Collaborative Curriculum program will place faculty and students at the St. Louis-based Family Care Health Center and Richmond, Mo.-based SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital. Training will begin in Jan. 2017.

"We have a great amount of expertise within our faculty in working with an underserved population," said Christine Jacobs, MD, program director of the SLU Family Medicine Residency at St. Mary’s Hospital and a professor in family and community medicine at Saint LouisUniversity. "And we will collaborate with community resources like Alive and Well to assist us with trauma training. At the Family Care Health Center we see traumas that reach our patients at every level."
