Horizon Health Network requires a full-time psychiatrist on the Child & Adolescent Team at its Community Addictions & Mental Health Centre and Youth Mental Health Inpatient Pod in Fredericton, NB. This psychiatrist would be an active member of the multidisciplinary team providing psychiatric care to patients under the age of 18 years, spending part of their time covering the inpatient unit, and part of their time providing outpatient services. The Foundation of the local hospital is currently running a large fundraising campaign to allow for the creation of a specific Youth Mental Health Inpatient Pod in our hospital. The psychiatrist in this position would play an integral role in the development of this new unit.
The successful candidate would become a member of our Department of Psychiatry, which consists of a total of 22 Psychiatrists when all positions are filled. The Department consists of quite a heterogeneous group of physicians, with many different countries of origin and many different personal and professional paths that have brought them to Fredericton. The Department provides outpatient services at Community Addictions & Mental Health Centres in Fredericton, Woodstock and Perth, New Brunswick. Subspecialty services in Seniors Mental Health, Early Psychosis, Flexible Assertive Community Treatment, Child & Adolescent, and Addictions are provided within outpatient services. Members also provide Psychiatric care to military veterans and RCMP through our Operational Stress Injury Clinic. Others provide service within a First Nations Mental Health Program and at a University Medical Clinic. We have a 25 bed inpatient unit, located at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital in Fredericton, fully staffed by a multidisciplinary team. This unit houses a Concentrated Nursing Care area with capacity for 5 severely ill inpatients and provides a Short Stay Program for Borderline Personality Disorder. Hospital services also provide care to patients admitted to other medical floors and youth who are admitted to the Pediatrics floor with Mental Health concerns. The Department makes regular use of the Provincial Telehealth Service in order to provide care to individuals in more remote parts of the province.
All members of the Department participate in regular Departmental meetings as well as regular educational sessions. Members are also expected to participate in an on-call roster, as well as a roster for providing ECT. Most members also participate in clinical supervision of medical students and residents, as they have affiliations with Dalhousie and Memorial universities.
This is a salaried position. Remuneration range is as follows: Certified Specialist: $221,078 to $268,788 annually, 37.50 hours of psychiatric care per week.
Preference will be given to Canadian citizens or permanent residents who hold a certificate in Psychiatry by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, but candidates possessing equivalent skills or licensed by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New Brunswick could be considered.
