Acute Care for Elderly (ACE) Unit

Psychology Services
This elective experience in clinical health psychology provides psychological services to patients on the inpatient unit.  Patients are elderly and many have chronic medical conditions that benefit from psychological intervention for cognitive decline or adjustment to the changes in the patient's life. 

Teaching
Psychology fellows provide supervision to clinical psychiatry students enrolled in the physician assistant studies program who are learning to administer and interpret the MMSE and several other psychological screening instruments.  Students are also required to provide stress reduction and healthy behavior information to patients on this unit.

Supervisor:  Jeff Baker, Ph.D.
