Dr. Hoover will provide a review of competencies and skills required of the prescribing psychologist referencing both Julien’s and Muse and Moores texts. Dr. Oushy will be introducing gross human anatomy and physiology based on the Hole’s text. Please keep in mind that a detailed study of the material is not required at this time. Dr. Oushy will offer a brief review of the systems named above as well as highlight their relevance to the prescribing psychologist.

Course Description: C EP 801-Class #1 The training director will provide an overview of the 25-month clinical psychopharmacology program at NMSU. The program overview will include program expectations, requirements and a look at resources that support the successful completion of the program. The program manuals will be highlighted and their contents reviewed. We will also look at New Mexico Law for Prescriptive Authority and discuss documentation requirements for the program as well as document requirements of the New Board of Psychologist Examiners. Dr. Hoover will provide an introduction of the required competencies for a prescribing psychologist as defined by the APA PEP examination. He will also detail the skill set necessary for a successful and competent prescribing psychologist in New Mexico including a review of point-of-service care, evidenced based practice behaviors as well as introduce various resources to assist Post-Doc’s in the learning process. Dr. Elaine LeVine will present 1-2 clinical cases common for a RxP psychologists in New Mexico. Finally, Dr. Mai Oushy will provide an introduction to gross anatomy and the relevance of overall health of a patient to an RxP psychologist in a primary and/or specialty care medical setting. By the end of the course, psychologists will have completed a detailed review of the clinical psychopharmacology program at NMSU. In addition, they will have received a detailed review of the competencies examined through the APA-PEP Examination as well as learned about the skill set required of a practicing prescribing psychologist in a primary care setting in the State of New Mexico. Finally, psychologists will have received a six-hour introduction to human anatomy and physiology emphasizing the importance and relevance of adding formal medical training to the practice of clinical psychology. Formal medical training is expected to enhance the post-doctoral psychopharmacology student’s ability to competently and safely prescribe or un-prescribe psychotropic medication.
This is the first of many classes and courses included in the 25-month program that will highlight systems, organs and tissues of the body and emphasize anatomical features and physiological processes that must be well understood by a properly trained psychologist licensed to prescribe psychotropic medication. The lecture series focuses on basic medical terminology and homeostatic mechanisms. In addition, prescribing psychologists will present complex cases with both psychological and physical manifestations to introduce the student to the broad knowledge base required of a prescribing psychologist. This course is congruent with the College of Education's Conceptual Framework in that it provides a general knowledge background, addresses assessment competencies, and integrates content knowledge and professional knowledge.
