The successful candidate will work closely with a team of established child and adolescent psychiatrists, and report to the Medical Director of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Division. Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital is part of Memorial Healthcare System. The successful candidate will also be faculty in the general psychiatry residency training program. The Memorial Hospital System plans to develop an ACGME-accredited Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship training program. Opportunities for research exist and are encouraged.
This is a full-time employed position with the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, part of the multispecialty Memorial Physician Group. The position offers a competitive benefit and compensation package that is commensurate with training and experience. Professional malpractice and medical liability are covered under sovereign immunity.

This expansion opened in November 2022 and includes a state-of-the-art Pediatric ICU, a new 20-bed cardiac ICU and step-down unit including new ORs with hybrid capabilities, three cath. labs and an interventional radiology suite. The hospital also expanded its surgical capacity with an addition of other new rooms and an interoperative MRI.

Memorial delivers nearly 14,000 babies per year in three hospitals and has 120 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) beds – both Level II and III services (the state of Florida is in the process of creating a separate designation for Level IV care, for which JDCH qualifies).
