Two or three master-level psychology interns from the University of North Dakota Psychology Department, working on their doctorates, are present in the residency program. Their presence, with their faculty, adds to a strong behavioral medicine component and allows the residents to benefit from an inter-disciplinary, learning environment.
Support staff consists of full-time nurses, part-time nurses, athletic trainers, a medical technologist, a laboratory technician, an x-ray technician, and front office staff. Each resident is assigned a nurse who follows them throughout their 3-year residency. Program faculty members maintain major clinical practices at the center, and two preceptors are always present to assist residents. Residents' charts are reviewed by a preceptor who may offer constructive advice. Records are easily accessible for quality assurance projects chosen once a year by each resident.
