The Department of Psychiatry at University of California, San Diego is recruiting for early and mid career child and adolescent psychiatrists to join our growing faculty cohort in our outpatient, tele-mental health, and community psychiatry programs. We are a strong program with world class research, teaching and innovative programs. The Community Psychiatry Program focuses on training Residents, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner Students, and Allied Mental Health Students in community based settings, working in unique practice models (such as wraparound services, residential treatment, and integrated care) and with specialized populations (including but not limited to homeless youth, LGBTQ youth and transitional age adults, youth facing psychiatric crises, children and families with undiagnosed mental illness). Psychiatrists will have opportunities to work with our well-established community partners, help foster new relationships with outside training sites, supervise fellow trainees and provide direct clinical care to underserved youth and their families. The ideal match is dedicated to providing excellent clinical care in the public sector.
If you are seeking a unique position in sunny San Diego, with its great weather and beautiful beaches, we hope you join our team at UCSD.
