Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist - Department of Psychiatry
The University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry is currently seeking a child and adolescent psychiatrist for a clinical faculty position. The candidate will join a progressive and growing child psychiatry division. The overall philosophy of this academic division is the provision of family centered care to each patient/family dyad seen in our inpatient and outpatient settings, in conjunction with our highly-regarded and well-established postgraduate training program.
The candidate’s clinical responsibility will rotate among three different settings all located in the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. The specific balance of time between settings has room for personalization. Our outpatient child psychiatry setting provides the opportunity to work with patients independently or with a resident physician, in specialty or general patient populations. Attending physicians also rotate as one of two child psychiatrists on inpatient child and adolescent unit. The candidate will be a team leader of an inpatient multidisciplinary team that includes child and adolescent psychiatry fellows, general psychiatry residents, medical students, nurses, social workers, psychologists, educational consultants, and rehab therapists and cares for a stimulating and diverse patient population. This team leader would be responsible for approximately 8 inpatients. The last setting consists of providing child psychiatry consult coverage to the newly opened University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. All members of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry faculty group share weekend and holiday coverage of the inpatient/consult service in conjunction with a postgraduate trainee (weekend coverage occurs approximately 5 weekends per year).
Although the candidate will work in all of these areas, we will work closely with the candidate to optimize his/her time to work in any preferred area of interest. We will also aid the candidate, if so desired, to develop a specialty outpatient clinic or join existing specialty clinics which currently include assessment and treatment of patients with Tourette syndrome, autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, and mood disorders.
This position involves teaching and mentoring Child and Adolescent Psychiatry residents, General Psychiatry residents, and medical students, as well as time to pursue academic interests.

About University of Iowa Health Care- Psychiatry
Welcome to the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Iowa! As the Department Chair, I am excited about both our strong traditions established from as far back as our founding in 1919, and our vibrant and continued growth. In recent years we have grown by over 30 new faculty members, including clinicians, researchers, and MD-PhDs engaged in both pursuits. This growth continues at even a higher pace as we have partnered with the newly established Iowa Neuroscience Institute (INI) in the development of innovative research and translational programs. While we have grown our cutting-edge research capacity, we have also strengthened our clinical services. For example, we have reorganized our outpatient clinics, implemented new approaches to the care of people with intellectual disability, reinvigorated our evidence-based psychotherapy services, and introduced a new telemental health program. On the education front, we introduced a research track in our residency and have strengthened our outpatient training. It is also reflected in our residency recruitment success, as we recently had the best two matches in over 20 years, landing many superb psychiatric trainees.
