Meet Our Fellows!
Amber Hewitt, PsyD is our first year Behavioral Health fellow. She received her BS in Psychology from Edgewood College in Madison, WI. She recently earned her doctorate in clinical psychology with a concentration in Primary Care Psychology from the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, IL. Amber completed her predoctoral internship at the Battle Creek VA Medical Center in the Primary Care/Health Psychology Track. Her clinical interests include motivational interviewing and health behavior change with a focus in obesity, diabetes, insomnia, and chronic pain. Amber enjoys playing volleyball and cooking.
Barre Family Health Center will be Amber’s primary health center location but she will be spending plenty of time in Worcester on FMIS and supporting residency training at Family Health Center of Worcester.
As someone who started the fellowship with no experience in medical education within a residency program, I’m constantly surprised by the breadth of applicability our skill set as behavioral health providers has in the training and developmental learning of resident physician and medical students."
Molly Igoe, PsyD, first-year Behavioral Health Fellow, earned her PsyD from La Salle University in Philadelphia, PA. In 2014 Molly completed the Integrated Primary Care specialty in her pre-doctoral internship at Riverbend Community Health Center and Concord Regional Health Center in New Hampshire.
She has extensive experience working on a variety of interdisciplinary teams, including palliative care and oncology, and this past year, she has been training alongside the family medicine residents in Concord. Hahnemann Family Health Center is her primary health center placement but Molly will also be supporting residency training at Family Health Center of Worcester.
"The fellowship offers an exceptional combination of opportunities to develop and hone skills in clinical practice and resident education. The training has prepared me well to collaborate with medical providers to extend the best outcomes for patients. Working alongside the residents, both in the outpatient clinic and the inpatient service, has been an especially enriching experience and will certainly enhance my competence as a behavioral health clinician and educator."
