Behavioral Medicine VA Rotation

NM VAHCS BEHAVIORAL MEDICINE ROTATION

 

Contact Information Coordinator: Cynthia Geppert, MD ethicdoc@comcast.net

 

Cheryl Reiss, RN, BSN, MBA: Informatics nurse/point of contact for computer codes: 505-265-1711 ext 2332. building 41, room 5c-118A. cheryl.reese@va.gov

 

 

Please work with Dr. Geppert to finalize your schedule day-to day. Our goal is for you to get some time in group therapy with the psychologists but to spend ~3/4 of your time seeing patients, working in VA behavioral medicine clinics (thus the importance of codes working).  

 

VERY IMPORTANT: you must have your codes renewed BEFORE starting this rotation.
