Linda Garcia-Shelton

I have a PhD in Counseling Psychology from Michigan State U, an MHSA in Health Systems Management and Policy from the University of Michigan School of Public Health, am ABPP boarded in Clinical Health Psychology, and currently am Vice Chair of the ABPP Foundation Board of Directors. I worked within in medical school departments of Family Medicine (Michigan State U, U of Illinois at Chicago, & U of S California) as a primary care behavioral medicine specialist in integrated co-located practices. I also was VP for Academic Affairs at what is now Palo Alto University, and Chair of the PsyD program at Florida Institute of Technology.

At MSU/FM I was on a team to Japan attending Japanese FM meetings and learned how their medical and medical education systems functioned. Later, I was invited to return to Japan as a Visiting Professor in FM for a semester. Shortly after, I was invited to begin a 5 year annual consultation with the public health dept. in Reggio Emilia, Italy. The goal was to work with both primary and secondary physicians and other health professionals to create multidisciplinary teams (not co-located, but near) so that collaboration was possible, and then expected. I have presented at international conferences since 1982, in North & South America, Europe, and Asia, most recently at the International Congress of Psychology in Yokohama, Japan in 2016.
