Social Work Co-Location
In partnership with Salisbury University, BHIPP places masters level social work interns in primary care practices on the eastern shore of Maryland. In this model, social work interns are available on-site to provide screening, brief intervention, referral, and real-time consultation to PCPs.
BHIPP is supported by funding from the Maryland Department of Health, and is conducted through a partnership among the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and Salisbury University Department of Social Work.
