Paul King Photo

Biography: Dr. King is a Clinical Research Psychologist at the Center for Integrated Healthcare (CIH) in Buffalo, NY and the Associate Director of the CIH Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. He is a graduate of the VA Advanced Fellowship in Mental Illness (MIRECC) program at CIH, and completed his pre-doctoral psychology internship at the VA Western New York Healthcare System. He earned both his MA and PhD from the State University of New York's University at Buffalo. He is a licensed psychologist, and provides behavioral health services and consultation in an integrated VA primary care clinic.

Research Interests: Dr. King’s research interests include post-deployment health issues in combat Veterans, mental health assessment, and processes pertaining to integrated care delivery. Recent post-deployment health studies have explored the cognitive and emotional impacts of deployment on combat Veterans, assessment and management of persistent post-concussion symptoms, the co-occurrence of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and health care utilization among Veterans with TBI and PTSD. Other related work has investigated the utility of pre-deployment cognitive characteristics in predicting future mental health outcomes, and the psychometric properties of a common post-concussive symptom measure. Studies pertaining to assessment and care delivery have explored facilitators and barriers in Veterans’ use of primary care-based mental health services, Veterans’ experiences in treatment, and mental health providers' use of brief symptom assessments in integrated care settings.
