Psychiatrists (Adult & Geriatric) opportunities with faculty appointment, Carilion Clinic VTCSOM- Roanoke Virginia
Carilion Clinic an academic medical center located in Roanoke, Virginia, has opportunities available for Adult and Geriatric Psychiatrists to join the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry. These positions offer the opportunity for teaching Psychiatry fellows and medical students at Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine in Roanoke, but the amount of responsibility will vary. Positions are available immediately due to ongoing growth and expansion.
Our division is comprised of general psychiatrists and nurse practitioners who work closely with the psychiatrists. In addition our patients benefit from the care of experienced and well trained social workers, psychologists, and care coordinators. These professionals share individual cases to ensure that each patient is given the best care possible.
Mental health disorders such as bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, chronic psychotic disorders, and substance use disorders can all be diagnosed and managed in this outpatient psychiatric section. Should a disorder prove to require more intense treatment, such as inpatient care, the individual can be quickly transferred to this higher level of management.
In our academic community, we have a variety of learners who will assist in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Psychiatric residents may see patients under the close supervision of an attending psychiatrist. Medical students from the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine often accompany a clinician in the care of a patient. The opportunity to have these eager learners participate in patient care further ensures that care is given in a professional and state- of-the-art manner.
Being part of a research community, patients may be given the opportunity to participate in a research study. When this is done, the patient has full knowledge of what the benefits and risks are. However, having a research community as part of the outpatient section emphasizes the importance of being at the cutting edge of psychiatric care.
