Seeking one BC/BE child psychiatrist for a rare opening at our established and highly-regarded outpatient-only private practice. This position is for a clinician committed to private practice and looking for a stable career. Our facility is located in northeast Florida beach community (Jacksonville Beach/Ponte Vedra Beach area). You will initially see children and adults (usually parents of patients) to grow your practice and may tailor your practice to mostly child/adolescent patients once established. If desired, you can establish a full schedule by the end of the 1st year and possibly sooner.
You will be an independent practitioner with a prestigious group practice in our 17th year. Our excellent reputation garners frequent referrals from our community. Currently, our two child psychiatrists usually have 3-month waiting lists for new patient appointments. We have 7 on-site therapists providing testing and therapy and 2 adult psychiatrists. Most patients are self-pay, though we bill insurance as a courtesy.
Income is dependent on hours worked; 20 to 30 contact hours a week is optimal, more is optional. Your practice is your own; you choose your hours. Our child psychiatrists now earn $220 to $250 per contact hour and see about 2-3 patients per hour. This is an outpatient only practice, no hospital call or care. Extremely light on-call by phone only for our patients. All inpatient care is provided by hospitalists at Nemours Children's Clinic and Wolfson Children's Hospital, with whom we have excellent working relationships.
We provide a turnkey workplace with exceptional staff and far above average collections using in-house billing that is responsive to providers. Our EMR is designed specifically for psychiatry and psychology services which include the ability to prescribe schedule II and IV medications electronically, confidential inter-office communication among staff and providers, and secure off-site access.
We are in an attractively furnished non-industrial office in a class A building, tranquil wooded setting near the beach. We have numerous nearby amenities include upscale neighborhoods, country clubs, shopping, dining and excellent schools. Our Medical Director/ Founding Psychiatrist originally developed this group over 16 years ago and this practice has never been sold.
We welcome full-time applicants. Many providers choose to work 20-25 contact hours per week and find flexible hours to be a valued perk, especially those who want more time with their families. Our corporate philosophy recognizes that provider satisfaction results in better care for our patients.
