Dr. Uzuncan is Director and Chief Psychologist of the Wright Institute’s Integrated Health Psychology Training Program (IHPTP), a multi-level training and service organization that includes an APA-accredited Internship, Postdoctoral Fellowship and Practicum Placement specifically for Wright Institute students.

Over the past decade, Dr Uzuncan has built a partnership with Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS) that allows clinical training opportunities to a future workforce of psychologists in primary care and other medical settings. In her role, Dr. Uzuncan oversees IHPTP’s day-to-day operations, program development and quality assurance activities and works directly with her team of 15 psychologists to ensure that IHPTP is a high-quality, comprehensive training and service delivery program addressing the behavioral health needs of a socio-culturally diverse and medically complex patient population (over 3000 patients served annually) in five health centers.

Since 2010, Dr. Uzuncan and her team have been working non-stop to build high-quality, integrated, and accessible specialty services within primary care including brief evidence-based psychotherapy; support groups (15), Neuropsychological and Adult ADHD Assessments, High-Risk Chronic Pain Management Clinics; HIV positive clinics and Gender Health clinics.

Dr Uzuncan serves as a member of the Contra Costa Health Services’ Behavioral Health Integration Leadership Committee that is responsible for developing and standardizing mental health screening, evidence-based treatment guidelines and service delivery throughout the Contra Costa Health System.
