Northwell Health’s Behavioral Health Service Line is seeking a board-certified or board-eligible psychiatrist to join our Consultation/Liaison (C/L) Psychiatry team at its Long Island Jewish Hospital at Forest Hills (LIJ-Forest Hills) site.

The C/L Service provides psychiatric assessment and treatment to hospitalized adult medical-surgical inpatients including a large labor and delivery service; teaching and supervision to medical residents and other medical and allied health professional trainees, and is academically and administratively linked to the Department of Psychiatry and the C/L Service at Long Island Jewish Medical Center.

The successful candidate will be an energetic and engaged clinician with good communication skills and experience and/or interest in C/L Psychiatry. A completed C/L Psychiatry Fellowship is preferred, and new fellowship graduates are encouraged to apply. Opportunities also exist for emerging departmental leadership roles and participation in diverse hospital committees.

LIJ-Forest Hills is a 312-bed community teaching hospital that provides inpatient medical and surgical care, intensive care, and obstetrics and gynecology services. The hospital is designated as a Level II Perinatal Center. Its Emergency Department (ED) is a 911 receiving site, a certified heart station, as well as a New York State-designated Stroke Center. Patients presenting in the ED with psychiatric complaints are evaluated and adjudicated by Northwell’s central emergency telepsychiatry ‘hub.’

In 2017 at LIJ-Forest Hills, there were approximately 16,500 inpatient discharges, including 2,000 women who delivered babies at the hospital; more than 55,000 ED visits, and 4,000 ambulatory surgery procedures.

\Northwell Health offers a highly competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package that includes partial reimbursement of undergraduate and graduate school tuition expenses for eligible dependents, and advanced education opportunities. The department subsidizes academic conferences and professional expenses. Participation in trainee (resident and medical student) education/supervision and academic appointment at our exciting new medical school, the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, are available.

Forest Hills is a mostly residential neighborhood in the borough of Queens in New York City. The neighborhood is surrounded by two of the largest parks in Queens and has two commuter railroads that makes commuting to Manhattan and other NYC and Long Island areas very accessible.
