Marcus Autism Center, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Emory University School of Medicine, are conducting a search for an outstanding child psychiatrist to join the Division of Autism and Related Disabilities.
Our Child Psychiatrist will focus on providing clinical care and pediatric psychopharmacology, but will also have opportunities to support research and to provide supervision of allied clinicians and clinical training for students. Child Psychiatrists work as part of an interdisciplinary team of providers to conduct medical and developmental evaluations as well as provide follow-up care on an outpatient basis. The Center values excellence in patient-centered care and will be looking for a person who is successful in effectively communicating with patients, families and colleagues. Our emphasis on providing empirically supported assessments and interventions rests upon a fundamental commitment to provide the best care for the greatest number of patients possible, and thus we take seriously the responsible stewardship of time and resources. Clinicians enjoy the opportunity to learn from interdisciplinary collaboration and to disseminate cutting edge technologies and models of clinical service delivery emerging from the synergies of active translational research in clinical context.
Successful candidates will be well trained in child psychiatry and will have a history of commitment to serving children with autism and their families. The position requires that candidates be license-eligible to practice as a physician in the state of Georgia. Faculty affiliation or appointment in the Emory University Department of Pediatrics is possible, depending on qualifications of the candidate. This position is also available as an employed physician as part of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
