Psychiatry Careers, Contact Us
CAREER BALANCE
IS WITHIN
YOUR REACH
Psychiatrists dedicated to providing quality mental health care are finding the professional balance they crave with California Correctional Health Care Services. Whether practicing in an inpatient, outpatient, or telepsychiatry setting, these physicians are afforded the time to carefully treat their patient caseload while honing advanced psychopharmacological skills. And with the flexibility of 4/10 shifts, evening and weekend practice opportunities, and a CME stipend with paid time off to attend, positive work-life balance can be yours too.
Our psychiatrists are able to focus primarily on clinical casework with no insurance to navigate or disability applications to complete. Additionally, while our drug formulary is expansive, it does not rely on benzodiazepines or stimulants.
