Memorial Healthcare System is looking to add a psychiatrist to its established adult inpatient and consultation psychiatric programs. This is an excellent opportunity for a motivated physician to be involved in a fully supported program in a large and recognized dynamic healthcare system.

Additionally, two half-days a week will be spent in the outpatient psychiatry practice that is being developed.
