Division of Bio-behavioral Medicine
The vision of the Bio-behavioral Medicine clinic is to help patients with chronic medical conditions and their providers manage the complex psychosocial aspects of illness to alleviate suffering, promote health, improve quality of life, and optimize medical care. The Division of Bio-behavioral Medicine serves as the interface between psychiatry and medicine at MUSC.
Faculty within the Division of Bio-behavioral Medicine represent a multi-disciplinary team of clinical health psychologists, physicians dual-boarded in internal medicine and psychiatry, nurse practitioners, post-doctoral fellows in behavioral medicine, fellowship-trained physicians in pain management, psychosomatic medicine and addictions, doctoral-level clinical psychology interns and psychiatry residents; conducting clinical patient care and research. We predominantly function in an outpatient capacity, both within our own clinic and through integrated clinics across medical specialties; however as availability allows we often consult with inpatient services related to transplant and cystic fibrosis.
