OverviewNorth Shore Medical Center (NSMC) has an exciting opportunity for a psychiatrist to join a thriving and growing psychiatric service in Salem, MA about 15 miles north of Boston. NSMC is part of the prestigious Partners HealthCare System, and the Department of Psychiatry is closely aligned with the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). The department provides a full spectrum of care, including adult inpatient psychiatry, an older adult inpatient unit, a child inpatient unit, a partial hospitalization program, and several outpatient clinics. We have a vibrant educational program, and teaching opportunities are available. Physicians in the department enjoy a collegial and supportive practice environment.
The psychiatrist position will provide outpatient care, including care of patients with “dual diagnosis” and substance use disorders. There is also the opportunity to have protected time to work with a team of social workers to provide “collaborative care” and consultation to our Primary Care Physicians, supported by Partners Population Health Management. The position can be 24 hours per week to full time, depending on the physician’s needs and preferences. The call schedule is very reasonable and requires no in-house coverage. A clinical appointment at MGH and the potential for a Harvard Medical School appointment are available for the qualified candidate.
Our department is presently engaged in creating a 90-120 bed “Center of Excellence” in collaboration with the MGH Department of Psychiatry, which will include an expansion of outpatient services as well. Physicians in the department can expect to be engaged and have input into the creation and design of this exciting new program.
