ICL is looking for psychiatrists to join Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) and Intensive Mobile Treatment (IMT) teams in Brooklyn, the Bronx and Staten Island. These teams provide multidisciplinary recovery-oriented services to people with serious mental illnesses living in the community. All team members make field visits to patients’ homes. Some teams are piloting integrated primary care with the Community Healthcare Network to provide a more holistic care experience for patients. Full-time and part-time option are available, with a minimum commitment of two days per week. There may be an opportunity to combine these positions with some outpatient clinic hours as well.
ICL is a leading community behavioral health agency offering a diverse and expanding continuum of services, including:
ICL is a recognized leader in developing integrated health services in community behavioral health settings, and is developing capacity to provide trauma-informed collaborative care in primary care settings as well. This is an exciting time of change in our field, and psychiatrists are needed to offer leadership in developing best practices. Innovative programs at ICL include the Diabetes Co-morbidity Initiative, a self-management program implemented in 19 behavioral health agencies in NYC, and the Emerson-Davis Family Center, a unique housing program for parents with mental illness working on reunification with their children. Salary is competitive. Specialty board certification, particularly child psychiatry, and Spanish language skills are a plus. Our psychiatrists must demonstrate a recovery-oriented, trauma-informed and integrated approach to working with individuals and families.
ICL supports candidates interested in participating in the integrated Nurse Practitioner fellowship.
