Upstate Hospital Adolescent Psychiatry Intensive Outpatient Program
Medical University in Syracuse, NY is seeking candidates to work in the soon to be opened Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). The IOP is designed for individuals who are experiencing mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation that are impacting their everyday functioning in their work, school, relationships, family and community. The IOP offers a more intensive treatment option than a traditional outpatient setting alone. The IOP provides a “ step down” level of treatment for patients discharged from inpatient or acute partial hospitalization settings, or a “ step up” level of treatment when traditional outpatient services are not effectively meeting their needs.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a team of highly qualified therapists working with children and adolescents in need of psychiatric care. Applicants will work within the multi-disciplinary setting providing individual, group and family therapy. The IOP is a DBT-informed program. There is also an additional DBT – A Comprehensive program available for patients needing more long-term treatment. Additionally, applicants will be responsible for completing required documentation following NYS Office of Mental Health (OMH) regulations.
We are searching for the following candidates:
Psychiatrist: Lisa Cardella, firstname.lastname@example.org to send a resume or contact at 315-464-3180 for further information.
Nurse Practitioner: Job #62886
LCSW/LMSW (5 open positions): Job #62891
We prefer candidates with DBT training and experience; however, will provide training for motivated candidates. Also, excellent health, dental and vision benefits.
We are an Equal Opportunity Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran status or disability.
