SBHC care includes evidence-based pediatric care, mental health care, preventive-oral health care, and all Bassett SBHCs are NCQA PCMH approved sites.
The new Co-Director will work with the current director to collaborate clinically with the advanced practice clinicians that provide the majority of the medical care in the SBHCs; the Co-Directors will provide clinical guidance for protocols, policies, and projects related to the School Based Health Program, including the development of new SBHCs and advocacy for the program at the local, state, and federal levels. The Co-Directors will work closely with the Managers of the SBH Program and both the Administrative Director and Chief of the Department of Pediatrics to plan strategically for the future of the program.
