Opportunity Description:

Correctional Health Services (CHS) in New York City, a new component of New York City’s Health and Hospitals’ public health care network, is on the cutting edge of mental health care in the unique, challenging and evolving world of jail psychiatry. As a public health outpost and temporary home of many of the city’s individuals with serious mental illness, the jail provides numerous opportunities to develop best practices of care, gain clinical, leadership and administrative skills useful in any psychiatric setting, develop an understanding of the complicated, yet critical, interface of psychiatry and criminal justice, and make a meaningful and positive impact on the lives of our patients.

CHS is seeking enthusiastic and mission-driven full-time, part-time, and moonlighting psychiatrists to provide high quality mental health care and supervision.

There is a wide variety of work environments, including clinic settings, residential housing units, a women’s facility, a young adult facility, and an adolescent facility. There are positions at Riker’s Island in Queens, Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx.

CHS offers competitive salaries, full benefits with at least 21 hours work per week, paid CME time, monthly Grand Rounds and weekly journal clubs, moonlighting opportunities; no after-hours responsibilities, flexible shifts including day, evening and overnights, opportunities to work with psychiatric residents and subspecialty fellows rotating in the jail, with accompanying academic appointment; multiple research opportunities, and access to the Public Psychiatry fellowships at NYU/Bellevue and Columbia University with protected didactic and academic time.
