The Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, Southwest Connecticut Mental Health System, seeks qualified individuals for the position of Principal Psychiatrist (PCN 027727), Medical Administration, Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit 2 (PICU 2), Inpatient. Location: Greater Bridgeport Community Mental Health Center, 1635 Central Ave, Bridgeport CT, 06610. 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, 40 hours, full time. The unit, with beds for residents of Connecticut, is a locked unit that treats severely and acutely ill psychiatric clients, who require a safe, supportive, highly structured hospital level of care.

The psychiatrist will prescribe appropriate medications and psychosocial treatments and will design individual treatment goals, in order to stabilize, evaluate, and treat clients. The treatment staff works closely with community providers to ensure that upon discharge a smooth transition to the community exists.
The Principal Psychiatrist will also offer second opinions on cases from other units, work collaboratively with other clinical units, participate in clinical case conferences, chair rounds and provide direct care and clinical oversight to the team, providing education as necessary, perform all necessary documentation in the medical record, and serve on center-wide committees at the request of the medical director. The incumbent will coordinate and review treatment plans, clinical records, diagnoses, and patient discharge plans for adherence to policies and Joint Commission Standards. Voluntary on-call coverage and weekend coverage is available at additional reimbursement.
