Marlon R. Koenigsberg PhD

Department of Family Medicine

Director of Human Behavior and Mental Health Training

Specialty/Research Focus

Clinical Psychology

Professional Summary:

As a licensed clinical psychologist working in a primary care medical office, my clinical practice includes caring for people with a broad range of adult mental health, interpersonal, and behavioral difficulties. I work closely with the primary care team, and am an active member of the multidisciplinary task group working to improve all types of health care in our offices. It is rewarding to work in an academic training environment with faculty physicians, nurses and staff who are dedicated to teaching the next generation of family physicians.

In my teaching role with family medicine residents and medical students, I am primarily responsible for curriculum regarding mental health, interviewing skills, relationships, normal psychological development, stress management, behavioral aspects of medical care, and engaging patients in their health care. I also do teaching and in-service training regarding the patient centered medical home.

My departmental responsibilities have included co-writing and administering many grants related to training primary care physicians. These grants have allowed us to expand our curriculum into new areas. This currently involves training our primary care residents for a changing medical environment, with emphasis on the patient centered medical home. I have also played a long-term role in clinical database management and evolving technologies.
