Full Time

Hi. Hey, you. Yeah, you! Do you feel like you are banging your head into a wall at every turn in your efforts to improve the lives of people in your community? Are you tired of being measured by your cumulative output rather than the progress you’ve helped a patient achieve in their life? Are you tired of having your ideas dismissed outright as unorthodox? Do you find yourself constantly shaking your fist at interventions imposed on you and decreed by individuals above you who have no clue about your practice? We’ve been there too. It is tiring, isn’t it? What if I told you there is a better way? What if I told you there was a place where you aren’t just meat for the grinder? “No way!” you’d say, "Not in healthcare.” Believe it, it exists, and you can find it at Ellie Mental Health, Ellie Mental Health is seeking a passionate and creative Psychiatrist to join our team as Director of Adult Psychiatry.
