Weill Cornell Medicine’s Department of Psychiatry in conjunction with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is seeking to recruit a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist for an outpatient attending position in the Center for Autism and the Developing Brain (CADB) at the NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester Behavioral Health Center in White Plains, NY. Academically oriented physicians with a strong foundation in the assessment and treatment of psychiatric disorders in children and adolescents with neurodevelopmental disorders, including Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), are encouraged to apply.
As a psychiatrist at the Center for Autism and the Developing Brain, you will participate in interdisciplinary assessments and care of children, adolescents, and adults with ASD. You will collaborate with team members representing various disciplines and provide psychiatric consultations and medication management to our outpatient patient population, and occasional consultations to the inpatient service for patients with ASD and/or Intellectual Disability. We look forward to your participation in educational activities such as providing lectures, clinical teaching, and case supervision to child psychiatry fellows, and to other types of trainees as our center grows.
Research opportunities are substantial, including participation in clinical trials of novel compounds in autism spectrum disorder and related genetic disorders. Up to 50% time for mentored or independent research is available for interested and qualified candidates.
