With an appealing blend of big-city amenities, cosmopolitan style, and communities which boast top notch school systems, the Indianapolis area is consistently ranked nationally among the best places to live.

Community Health Network seeks a BE/BC Psychiatrist for an exciting opportunity to become a core faculty member for our ACGME-accredited psychiatry residency program. Our community-based program is designed to provide exceptional physician training using a robust array of mental health service experiences combined with a comprehensive didactic curriculum. The faculty are committed to preparing residents to succeed at the forefront of the evolving role of psychiatry in the delivery of healthcare. This role offers flexibility in a variety of practice setting options: inpatient-only, inpatient-outpatient mix, consult liaison and/or emergency psychiatry. Previous faculty/teaching experience preferred.

About the Community Psychiatry Residency:
· Single EMR (EPIC)
· Capacity for four residents in each class; first class began in July 2016
· Affiliated with central Indiana’s largest behavioral health provider, offering the full continuum of services and a team-based approach to patient care
· Highly competitive salary and benefits package (start bonus/loan repayment, CME, paid time away)
· Physician-led organization
· Ability to practice in an organization that is truly physician-led and values work-life balance
· A network that ranks #1 nationally in patient satisfaction

About Community Health Network Academic Affairs:
In 2012, the network became an independent sponsor of graduate medical education under the ACGME. While affiliated with both Indiana University School of Medicine and Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine, the network sponsors graduate medical education in a variety of specialties, including family medicine (ACGME, AOA), podiatry, psychiatry and a hospitalist fellowship. Physicians who are core faculty will work with the residency program as their primary activity, with delivery of clinical care done primarily with residents and students, not independently. The facilities of the network and patient population are ideal for a rich educational experience for psychiatry residents in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Core faculty work as a team to meet the educational program and resident needs during 4 years of training, while helping to develop a new curriculum for the residency program.

About Community Behavioral Health Services:
Community Health Network is Central Indiana’s largest provider of behavioral health services, with close to 4,300 inpatient stays and 19,000 outpatient visits per year for children through senior adults. The Behavioral Health Pavilion at Community Hospital North operates in the context of a large community- based health system and Gallahue CMHC. The Pavilion is a full-service, 123-bed inpatient behavioral health hospital with nine units offering unique programming to fit the needs of our patients. Two separate units for children and adolescents are dedicated to treating youth ages 5 – 18. Specialized units offer treatment focusing on mood disorders (depression and anxiety issues), serious mental illness, integrated recovery (co-occurring addiction and mental health disorders), as well as a psychiatric intensive care unit for consumers who need a highly-controlled and monitored setting to ensure safety. Seasons is our older adult unit for those experiencing significant behavioral changes resulting from medications, life events, and new or progressing psychiatric conditions. The inpatient experiences focus on the thorough evaluation and stabilization of an acute episode with follow-up care arranged in the community.
