66 Bed facility – inpatient ADC 30
Daily inpatient staffing: 2 psychiatrists – one of whom is the facility medical director - and 2 nurse practitioners
Will not accept visa candidates.
The ideal candidate will have working experience in an acute inpatient psychiatric setting.
The responsibilities of the facility medical director are comparable to those of a unit chief. Enjoy a small department, with more interaction with the senior leadership of the hospital than a unit chief would have. Take part in monthly medical executive and credentialing meetings, as well as ongoing program development, which give you a more complete view of how the hospital functions and broaden your exposure to the rest of the hospital.
The bulk of the work of the Facility Medical Director is within psychiatry itself: treatment teams and discharge planning, being the senior-most clinician, monitoring metrics, limited chart reviews, looking over problematic patients or outcomes, and mentoring more junior clinicians. The group provides support for scheduling and metrics and has extensive leadership training programs. This position is a great step for professional development and allows for a broader and more interesting career.
