The National Center for Integrated Behavioral Health (NCIBH) at Mayo Clinic is an innovation hub for testing, developing and disseminating best practices to improve the quality, accessibility, and effectiveness of treatment for mental health and substance use disorders in primary care through effective training models.
Through its pilot mechanism, the NCIBH funds proposals for innovative training models in integrative behavioral health (IBH) that target medical students, residents and advanced practices nurses. Proposals demonstrate the potential to improve IBH education in primary care or inform policy that shapes primary care training. NCIBH pilot programs focus on the development, implementation, and evaluation of curricula and experiential learning in IBH for primary care trainees.
Current NCIBH pilot programs include:
Future pilot programs
NCIBH is particularly interested in rapid pragmatic approaches, evaluation of best practices, and development and amplification of existing curricula as potential models to accelerate adoption of best practices in integrating IBH into existing curricula, such as those that:
- Foster interdisciplinary curricular and experiential learning in IBH that will have meaningful results for primary care populations
- Assist in garnering external support for large-scale studies in the field of IBH
- Encourage additional clinician educators to become involved in the generation and evaluation of IBH training models
- Identify innovative training programs in the field of IBH that have the potential of informing local, state, and national policy and programming
