INTRODUCTION: Professional counselors are becoming increasingly represented in the Primary Care Behavioral Health (PCBH) workforce. Accordingly, models for training these professionals to work in integrated health care settings are needed. METHOD: This article presents the results of 34 master's level counseling students' self-reported competencies in PCBH as a result of a PCBH training program. RESULTS: Results indicated that students' self-perceived competence across all domains increased over time. DISCUSSION: Implications for the function of self-reported skill development in students training as behavioral health consultants in primary care are discussed.
