San Antonio is a diverse city that offers warm weather year round and a very reasonable cost of living. This is partially due to the absence of a state income tax. There is always something to do in San Antonio, whether it is the museums, the Riverwalk, hundreds of restaurants, or catching a Spurs game.  There are also an abundance of outdoor activities and lakes within a short drive.

Psychology Service is looking to fill the position of a Primary Care-Mental Health Integration Behavioral Health (PCMHI-BH) Psychologist. The incumbent will be assigned to the Mental Health Service Line, with primary assignment to the Primary Care-Mental Health Integration Behavioral Health  (PCMHI-BH) program, which is located within primary care.  You will function as part of a multidisciplinary primary care team and deliver brief consultation-based services to Veterans within that setting.  The focus is on general service delivery for a wide range of concerns and resolving problems within the primary care service context.  Behavioral health visits are brief (generally 20--30 minutes), limited in number (1-6 visits), and are provided in the primary care practice area, structured so that the Veteran views meetings with the behavioral health provider as a routine primary care service.  You will function within a fast-paced primary care team and can expect to consult with 8-10 patients per day with the primary goal of assisting the patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) members with identification, treatment, and management of mental health and behavioral medicine conditions in the enrolled population. Other duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Provide a full range of psycho-diagnostic services which include the use of psychological testing for patients within the STVHCS in areas of special interest and/ or expertise.        
  • Perform psychological evaluations for individuals with mental health and medical disorders for the purpose of diagnostic clarification and treatment planning recommendations.        
  • Provide a range of psychological therapeutic interventions, including group and individual formats, with individuals with mental health and medical disorders utilizing empirically supported modalities when indicated.  Services may be delivered in a face-to-face and/or telehealth format.       
  • Consult and serve as a resource for other professional personnel concerning the need for, evaluation of, and development of psychological services in STVHCS.
