California Correctional Health Care Services and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation are seeking CA-licensed psychiatrists to join our statewide telepsychiatry team providing night and weekend coverage. This coverage will reflect hours between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. for 3 days per week (may or may not be consecutive), including either Saturday or Sunday. 

If you’re a psychiatrist who enjoys working nights, is comfortable handling psychiatric emergencies and triaging patients, and enjoys interacting with nursing staff and patients, this is the ideal opportunity for you. As this is an active all-night position, these opportunities are not compatible with daytime employment between night shifts.

We offer some of the most advanced technologies available in a clean, quiet, and comfortable atmosphere. If you are ready to practice within a special program where you can help change lives while maintaining the balance in your own, consider joining one of the following office-based teams:

  • Diamond Bar, CA
  • Elk Grove, CA
  • Rancho Cucamonga, CA
  • Santa Ana, CA

Our psychiatrists enjoy not just increased salaries, but also a range of comprehensive State of California benefits:

  • Comprehensive Medical, Dental, and Vision Coverage: Essential healthcare needs covered for you and your family.
  • Generous Paid Time Off and Holiday Schedule: Ample time for rest and personal pursuits.
  • Robust 401(k) and 457(b) Retirement Plans: Secure your future with tax-deferred retirement plans allowing you to defer up to $46,000 - $61,000 per year.
  • State of CA Retirement that Vests in Five Years: Long-term security with benefits that start in just five years (more details at
  • Annual Stipend of $2,500/year for CME costs and Annual Allocation of 56 hours for CME: Invest in your professional development with our Continuing Medical Education benefits.
  • Potential PSLF and NHSC Loan Repayment: You could be eligible for significant loan repayment through PSLF and, depending on your location, NHSC.
  • Paid license, and DEA renewal: And no need for malpractice insurance as a State employee.
  • Relocation Assistance: If you’re new to state service in California, we’ve got the cost of your move covered.
  • Dedicated Assistance with Visa Sponsorship: We support your work visa needs.
