Our established practice has seven psychiatrists and two nurse practitioners. Our busy practice is long established with a highly collegial and supportive working environment.

The ideal candidate will be board certified/eligible in psychiatry. Spanish speaking a plus. This is an employed position with a highly competitive compensation package, including allowances for CMEs and Dues expenses and relocation stipend. The role will be mostly inpatient with some outpatient conducted by tele-health or in-person. Occasional weekend coverage is shared with a nurse practitioner and paid at an additional per diem rate. Our program offers teaching appointments, working with Nuvance Health psychiatry residents and medical students from the University of Vermont, Ross University School of Medicine, and the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine.

Astride a hill with a commanding view of the Long Island Sound, Norwalk Hospital serves a varied and attractive region of Southern Connecticut. The hospital is just minutes from beautiful places to hike, swim, sail, or just walk along the beach. Connecticut Magazine recently named South Norwalk as the “hottest” nightspot between Boston and New York City, with a plethora of theater groups and restaurants to choose from. The area has highly rated public schools. New York City is easily accessible by car or train.
