Fulltime Position. Boston Medical Center

The Section of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at Boston Medical Center (BMC) is currently seeking a full-time child/adolescent-trained Clinical Psychologist with a special interest in bringing brief evidence-based mental health therapies to pediatric primary care.

The successful applicant will participate with a multidisciplinary team at Boston Medical Center and Boston Children’s Hospital in the development, implementation, and evaluation of a major new initiative that will bring mental health services to pediatric clinics in community health centers in underserved neighborhoods in and around Boston.  This four-year demonstration project will employ a stepped model of mental health care supported by multidisciplinary mental health training and consultation for health center physicians and social workers and care coordination for health center patients and families. A key role for the psychologist will be to train and support health center social workers in the delivery of brief evidence-based therapies. This integrated care work will be supplemented by one clinical day per week in the BMC child psychiatry outpatient program, developing a specialty clinic in the applicant’s primary area of clinical interest.  Opportunities to participate in teaching and supervision of psychology pre- and post-doctoral trainees will be available.  Training and experience in evidence-based therapies is essential; training in community-based intervention research and integrated care is highly desirable. 

The applicant must possess a Massachusetts health service provider license in clinical or counseling psychology prior to assuming the position. Graduates of APA/CPA-approved doctoral programs and internships are preferred. Academic appointment will be recommended at Boston University School of Medicine commensurate with academic accomplishment.  Women and minorities are encouraged to apply; fluency in Spanish is a major plus.

Interested applicants should send a letter detailing relevant experience and a current CV to Heather Walter, MD, MPH, Chief, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Boston Medical Center, at heather.walter@bmc.org.

Boston University School of Medicine/Boston Medical Center is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
