The Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center Department of Psychiatry along with our clinical partner, the Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute (PPI), is recruiting board eligible/board certified Child/Adolescent Psychiatrists.
To better serve the needs of our regional community, PPI has recently completed a programmatic expansion of its child mental behavioral health services including an opening of a new inpatient adolescent unit.
Seeking an Inpatient Psychiatrist for its recently expanded adolescent unit. The ideal candidate will join the current inpatient team of two experienced board certified child and adolescent psychiatrists. The new unit ensures that adolescent patients are treated in a separate unit designed for their specific developmental needs. The position may be either a full time inpatient position, or may include outpatient clinic time if interested.
In conjunction with the expansion of our pediatric inpatient and partial hospitalization services, we are seeking a Child/Adolescent Psychiatrist to work in the outpatient setting. Primary clinical focus is working with children and adolescents but opportunities for care across the lifespan in a variety of settings exist if interested. There are minimal on-call requirements with additional compensation for extra call.
Both positions will include a faculty appointment within the Department of Psychiatry at the Penn State College of Medicine. There would be ample opportunities for teaching medical trainees of all levels, as well as the capacity for other scholarly and administrative activities.
Board eligibility in child and adolescent psychiatry is required with certification within 6 years of hire.
