Memorial Healthcare System is looking to add multiple psychiatrists to its established adult and child and adolescent inpatient psychiatric programs. This is an excellent opportunity for motivated physicians to be involved in a fully supported program in a large and recognized dynamic healthcare system. This is also a particularly exciting time to join the Memorial Healthcare System’s Department of Psychiatry, as plans are underway to develop an ACGME-accredited psychiatry residency training program to welcome its inaugural class of PGY-1 residents in July of 2019. Of particular interest are candidates with a passion for teaching and a strong interest in shaping the didactic curriculum of a premiere training program for the benefit of future generations of psychiatrists.
The inpatient department is on the Memorial Regional Hospital campus, allowing patients access to critical care and emergency treatment services should the need arise. The department currently has 53 adult beds and 12 pediatric beds and averages more than 2,000 admissions per year.
The successful candidates will provide treatment for the adult and child and adolescent psychiatric inpatient units, as well as consultations to the adult and pediatric Emergency Departments and the general hospital medical patients and should meet the following qualifications:
BE/BC in psychiatry with addiction medicine experience and/or training
BC in child and adolescent psychiatry (for the positions in the child and adolescent units)
Experience in psychiatric evaluation and medication management
Strong interest in teaching and fostering learning in trainees
These are full-time employed positions with the multispecialty Memorial Physician Group. The positions offer a competitive benefits and compensation package that is commensurate with training and experience. Professional malpractice and medical liability are covered under sovereign immunity.
