Fantastic opportunity for a general adult Psychiatrist to join the expanding Psychiatry department at Kelowna General Hospital. Discover the rewards of career satisfaction working within a strong culture of teamwork while delivering excellence in care! Our group of Psychiatrists provides service to KGH’s 30 bed inpatient unit, 6 bed Adult MH Intensive Care Unit, consults to the medical/surgical units and the emergency department, as well as maintain a community based practice. Duties will include, but not be limited to, patient assessment and treatment, collaboration with clinicians and managers, and assistance with the development and maintenance of appropriate programs, policies, and procedures. There are multiple opportunities in supporting the local community through the outpatient counselling department for Community Mental Health and Substance Use (MHSU) or the broader community through telepsychiatry. This role also offers teaching opportunities to medical students and residents as KGH is affiliated with UBC Faculty of Medicine Southern Medical Program.

In addition to general adult psychiatry, this position also has 0.3 FTE dedicated to our Developmental Disability Mental Health (DDMH) program. Join this highly capable team which includes Nursing and Health Sciences Professions (Masters level in Social and Behavioural Sciences) throughout the region. The program sees 800 - 1200 referrals each year and operates 10 clinics across the Interior Health Region.

This role will situate you largely in Kelowna with some need for travel and outreach to the surrounding region. You will work closely with Psychiatry DDMH lead and the DDMH tertiary leadership. The role may include some participation in provincial DDMH initiatives and other psychiatrists in DDMH programs across the province. Experience in this area is an asset but not required.
