Tele Psychiatry System-wide Director (Faculty Appointment)
We seek a senior psychiatrist to join and lead our Telehealth program. We are currently involved in multiple clinical efforts targeting our support of Carilion’s growing network of 7 hospitals and 45 patient centered medical homes across 240 miles of Southern Virginia through synchronous and asynchronous models. Our multi-faceted team of psychiatrists, therapists and behavioral specialists helps patients with mental health and chemical dependency issues. We offer adults and adolescents both outpatient and inpatient care at specialized facilities located in southwest Virginia. Opportunities exist to develop integrated undergraduate and graduate medical education in these efforts.
Currently our faculty numbers over 60 individuals housed in multiple locations in the Carilion Clinic system and at the Salem Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Our residency program focuses on research competence and scholarship, key elements in developing the skills necessary for the future psychiatric physician. Our work incorporates evidence-based psychotherapy training and decision support in psychopharmacology. We foster an interprofessional approach to care delivery and work closely in the development and implementation of evidence-based practice as a standard of care. We’re at the beginning of a transformative process. Carilion Clinic has committed major funding to help build new facilities for our department by 2020.
Virginia Tech Carilion Partnership
The Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, headed by the neuroscientist Dr. Michael Friedlander, is growing rapidly and incorporates large and well-funded initiatives in functional neuroimaging, health behavior research, addictions, and interventional psychiatry. We are developing close linkages in each of these evolving domains and working to assure that our patients are provided access to cutting edge care and interventions, including Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.
Mission, Goals and Strengths
Our mission is to advance the mental and physical health of our communities, and to become an internationally recognized pioneer of clinical excellence through the dedicated integration of education, discovery and recovery.
What will psychiatry look like in the years ahead? At Carilion, the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine is not only transforming the way care is conceived of and delivered for our patients, but we are working to train and shape the physicians and thought leaders of tomorrow through our work with the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Research Institute.
By integrating our services into specialty clinics, primary care offices and community-based agencies, we are able to hone in on the best ways to treat mental illness and substance abuse disorders within our region.
In addition, Carilion’s vast network allows us to reach out to those in rural communities through our tele-psychiatry program via emergency psychiatry, inpatient psychiatry, ambulatory care, consultation and tele-therapy.
Board certification in General Adult Psychiatry or a Subspecialty required; previous experience with Telehealth preferred.
