Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist
Silver Hill Hospital, a non-profit psychiatric hospital in New Canaan, CT, is recruiting a full-time C&A psychiatrist to lead its established, adolescent residential treatment program. The total program includes an adolescent IOP and onsite school program. Patients are 13 through 17 years of age with a wide range of non-psychotic disorders. The full-time staff includes a senior social worker, junior social worker, a senior residential counselor, 24-hour staffing with additional residential counselors, education specialists and part-time psychologist. A comprehensive diagnostic assessment and work with families are important parts of the program.
The adolescent residential program is structured as a 6-week program, located on the Silver Hill campus in a newly renovated, 10-bed house. The Hospital also has a 10-bed, adolescent inpatient unit led by its own C&A psychiatrist and the two programs work collaboratively.
We offer competitive compensation, attractive benefits and provide malpractice insurance for both the Hospital and private practice.
Psychiatrists may maintain an independent private practice either on or off site.
Silver Hill Hospital has a long history of providing outstanding treatment of psychiatric and substance use disorders. Founded in 1931 we are located just 40 miles north of New York City.
