Traditions Behavioral Health forever changed the landscape of inpatient psychiatry when we introduced the hospitalist shift model, allowing our doctors to earn a full-time salary and benefits in as little as 7 days per month.
This job post specifically targets the psychiatrist looking for a flexible hospitalist position, serving a variable schedule or multiple sites.
Some of our featured sites include:
Santa Barbara PHF - 16 bed acute unit with a CSU an coverage to some outpatient programs each day, we provide Monday through Friday coverage and one weekend per month,
San Luis Obispo County - 16 bed acute unit where the doctor covers the outpatient about 6 hours in each day and the rest of the time is on inpatient,
San Jose Behavioral Health - 80 bed unit where we are currently providing 3 sixteen hour shifts per day, the caseloads are 24 for adult and 17 for adolescent on weekdays and on weekends they increase the caseloads to cover the full 80 beds,
Humboldt County - 16 bed acute unit with a CSU attached where they typically see 4-6 patients,
Aurora Santa Rosa - 80-90 bed hospital and we provide 1 sixteen hour shift per day covering the adult unit with 24 beds
The doctor working this role would be responsible for 7-9 shifts per month (or more, if the doctor wishes) at a combination of facilities. Salary would be based on our hospitalist pay grid, and the package would include these full benefits.
