Admissions Psychiatrist Needed – Fairfield County, CT – Part-Time Opportunity
Private nonprofit psychiatric hospital located in Fairfield County, CT has an opening for a part-time psychiatrist to provide initial evaluations of patients being admitted to our hospital. Patients who are scheduled for admission (we have no emergency room) receive a thorough diagnostic and current-state evaluation in our admissions department before being transferred to one of our programs. This evaluation is the basis for initial treatment planning, including selection of the most appropriate level of care at our hospital as the next step after admission.
Our Admissions Department has a full-time staff including nursing, social work, nursing assistants, telephone answering staff and administrative leadership.
The available opening is for either one or two 8-hour days per week. The successful applicant will be certified in Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology or eligible for this certification.
