Job Summary

The Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan is seeking a clinical-track psychiatrist to work with the Adult Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Crisis Support Clinic (CSC), both based at University Hospital (UH).  The primary activity for this position is patient care, though there is a possibility for administrative leadership.  Effort at less than 100% is negotiable. This position is assigned to the Hospital Services Section which includes Adult Inpatient, Adult Consultation-Liaison, Psychiatry Emergency Services and Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT).  The candidate has the option to have all of their assigned time with the PHP/CSC, or have a fraction of their time in another hospital (or possibly ambulatory) service.  The successful candidate will participate in the clinical and teaching aspects of the adult service with a primary focus on acute care outpatient (PHP/CSC) work.  The candidate will join a dynamic group of hospital-based psychiatrists under a leadership team that values clinical ability and educational effort. 


Primary clinical responsibilities for this position will be in the Partial Hospitalization Program and Crisis Support Clinic.  This is a new program that treats patients in crisis and/or have been discharged from psychiatric or medical inpatient units.  The PHP/CSC functions as an extension of the inpatient psychiatry resources at UH (including adult inpatient psychiatry and consultation-liaison psychiatry) and helps to provide a bridge between the intensity of hospital services and general ambulatory care.  Patients are individuals with mood and psychotic disorders, primarily from Washtenaw and surrounding counties. 

In the PHP/CSC, the candidate will provide new patient evaluations, complete psychopharmacology assessments and participate in the team care of patients while they are in the program. The candidate will join a team that will include psychiatrists, social workers, activity therapists, and nurses.  The applicant will provide supervision of residents and teaching of medical students.

Academic interests are encouraged.   Programmatic research is not expected and specific protected time to do research is not allocated.   For those interested in research, the Department of Psychiatry and affiliated institutes at the University of Michigan provide state-of-the-art research facilities. 

Successful candidates will be interested in quality improvement and continuity of care, program enhancements and will be able to work effectively within a team structure.
