Our Mission

We strive to meet the needs of Hartford Hospital patients and physicians by providing psychological services, including evaluation, consultation and treatment. We provide services with an ongoing commitment to education and professional development. In addition, we work to collaborate with colleagues, educate and serve the community, participate in clinically relevant research, and assist in the training of new psychologists. We aim to become recognized as a regional center of excellence for the provision of health psychology services.

The Division of Health Psychology at Hartford Hospital is part of the Department of Psychology and employs licensed psychologists with expertise in evaluating and treating individuals with a variety of medical conditions. We provide consultation, evaluation and treatment in an outpatient setting. We provide services in English and Spanish. In addition to providing clinical services, we are involved in the Psychology internship program at the Institute of Living, where clinical psychology interns may participate in a minor rotation. We have provided supervision for the APA approved Health Psychology postdoctoral fellowship and are working to develop additional training opportunities at the postdoctoral level. We remain active in our community by providing psychological services in satellite offices and by presenting psychological information and training to allied health professionals.
