The  Integrated Care Psychiatric Consultant Learning Collaborative (PCLC) is designed for psychiatric providers seeking additional training to deliver integrated care in community-based settings. The one-hour sessions are offered once a month, with a short didactic presentation followed by questions and discussion on a variety of integrated care topic.

Integrated Care Psychiatric Consultant Learning Collaborative (PCLC) is a collaboration with the University of Washington Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, UW Medicine, and the Integrated Care Training Program.
