330.639.01 THE INTERSECTION OF MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH
Addresses the epidemiology, consequences, measurement, and implications for health service delivery of co-morbidity of mental and physical disorders. Employs a conceptual framework that emphasizes the potential psychological, behavioral, social, and biological mechanisms through which mental and medical illness interact to cause disability and death. This model has implications for development of new service delivery models that integrate the care of mental health disorders into the care of medical conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Students interact with investigators and clinicians in lecture format, examine case studies, and generate a paper related to a medical-psychiatric co-morbidity of their choosing.
