We are recruiting for a Psychiatrist – General Adult Outpatient Services, Guelph
The Waterloo Wellington Branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association is recruiting to fill a vacancy due to physician relocation in General Adult Outpatient Services.
This position can be full or part time, and there is flexibility to incorporate the psychiatrist’s particular set of knowledge, interest and experience. Interest and skills in psychiatric psychopharmacology and a desire to work with patients in a community setting who often have a variety of co-morbidities and psychosocial challenges, are necessary. There is an opportunity for psychiatrists who are required by the CPSO to have a year of supervised practice, subject to supervisor availability. A core group of 10 psychiatrists also make this an attractive opportunity for a new graduate.
Leadership to a multidisciplinary team and active collaboration with primary care providers and other community partners is expected, and service site may include co-location in the Guelph Community Health Centre.
Opportunities also exist for an academic appointment with the Kitchener-Waterloo campus of the McMaster School of Medicine, and active teaching of medical students, family medicine and psychiatry residents is encouraged. There are also options for more formal teaching roles within the satellite medical campus which is situated in Kitchener.
Additionally, there is the opportunity to jointly credential with Grand River Hospital, and join their department of psychiatry, a 25 member group providing acute and specialized mental health services across the age continuum with 115 inpatient beds and associated outpatient services.
