Opportunity: Consulting Psychiatrist, Fee for Service
Description: The Memorial University Counselling Centre (UCC) requires a licensed psychiatrist to provide diagnostic assessments, crisis intervention and psychiatric medication management services to Memorial University students. The Consulting Psychiatrist will also provide medical/psychiatric consultation to the UCC Director, clinicians (counsellors in the UCC and physicians in the Student Health Clinic). The UCC Consulting Psychiatrist will also serve as a liaison between UCC/Student Health Clinic and local inpatient psychiatric services when needed.
The Consulting Psychiatrist will have access to a wide range of patient presentations with varying complexity. The campus community is large enough to support a full time practice, but this opportunity allows for some flexibility in setting hours of service.
Overhead: 5% of MCP billings will be retained by the UCC to partially offset some of the overhead costs including secretarial and billing support provided by the UCC.
