Consultation/Liaison Psychiatry Division Director, Department of Psychiatry, Long Island Jewish Medical Center of Northwell Health

The Department of Psychiatry at Long Island Jewish Medical Center (LIJMC)/Northwell Health is seeking a forward-thinking Division Director with excellent clinical, administrative, and academic skills to lead its Consultation/Liaison (C/L) Psychiatry Division.

The C/L Psychiatry Division, and its six full-time psychiatrists and two nurse practitioners, serves two hospitals within LIJMC:  (1) Long Island Jewish Hospital (a 580-bed medical-surgical hospital that anchors the three-hospital complex that comprises the main LIJMC New Hyde Park campus and also includes Cohen Children’s Medical Center (a 202-bed pediatric hospital) and The Zucker Hillside Hospital (a 230-bed psychiatric hospital)] and (2) Long Island Jewish Hospital – Valley Stream (a 284-bed community hospital located approximately 8 miles away). An innovative tele-psychiatry C/L functionality to LIJ-Valley Stream is being implemented shortly. The team also is initiating an outpatient role at Northwell’s HIV Center, with an additional tele-psychiatry component.

A major training site for The Zucker Hillside psychiatry residents, the C/L Division also operates a highly-regarded ACGME-accredited fellowship program in collaboration with our sister Northwell facility, North Shore University Hospital. The fellowship includes a unique perinatal psychiatry track in partnership with the Department’s Women’s Behavioral Health program. The service is also a training site for geriatric psychiatry fellows, medical students, and NP students from our medical school (The Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell) and graduate studies nursing school.

Formative cross-departmental relationships are ongoing or developing with Northwell’s new Oncology Institute, transplant programs, OB-GYN, and Cardiology departments, and emerging Collaborative Care (integration of behavioral health and primary care) initiatives; with opportunities for further expansion in these and other programs.

Division Director responsibilities include operational oversight of the C/L service and training programs, quality and performance monitoring and improvement, continued inculcation of a clinical culture adherent to evidence-based practices that increasingly employs measurement-driven and data-informed outcome/assessment processes, some clinical service, and an administrative/academic time allocation. The position is further enriched through interactions with our world-renowned Psychiatry Research programs, large ECT service, and Behavioral Health Service Line, which enables cross-talk with C/L counterparts at other Northwell Health system hospitals. 

We offer an exceptional compensation and benefits package. Academic appointment is commensurate with credentials and experience at our exciting new medical school, The Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell.
