Winslow G. Gerrish, PhD

Clinical Assistant Professor/Psychotherapy Supervisor FMRI

Family Medicine Residency of Idaho

Work Experiences / Areas of Interest

I am Behavioral Science Faculty at the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho (FMRI) and Affiliate Faculty with the Boise VAMC’s Center of Excellence in Primary Care Education (CoEPCE). In my current role, I thoroughly enjoy a nice balance of time across teaching, clinical, and scholarly activities. Prior to joining FMRI, I was a staff psychologist at the Boise VAMC in Home-Based Primary Care, the CoEPCE, and with the PTSD Clinical Team. I am in active pursuit of grant-funded research opportunities related to PCMH-transformation and integrated primary care, and have previously participated in several federally funded multi-site investigations. I have trained and worked with medical residents throughout my entire career and am passionate about preparing residents to care for patients at the intersection of physical-, mental-, and behavioral-health. My teaching, research, and clinical interests include behavioral medicine (especially health-behavior change, chronic pain, and addictive behaviors), mindfulness- and acceptance-based psychotherapies, the application of cognitive-behavioral treatment modalities in primary care settings, and the function of interprofessional team-based care in the context of PCMH-transformation and graduate medical education. I am delighted by the opportunity to supervise, teach, and work alongside psychiatry residents in our integrated primary care clinics.
