We're seeking a Director of Psychiatry to lead our inpatient Psychiatry unit and provide inpatient care at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital, a service of Dignity Health.

The qualified candidate will enjoy a mix of inpatient and outpatient care, with about one half-day of outpatient clinic per week, and the opportunity to lead our department. Our locked behavioral health unit holds 22 beds, with a census of 8-16 patients per Psychiatrist, and average length of stay of 3-5 days. Call is once every fourth night (taken by phone) and every fourth weekend, shared with one other Dignity Health Psychiatrist and community Psychiatrists. We also offer the support of a tele-psych service to assist with night call, if desired.

We offer a guaranteed salary, competitive benefits, and retirement, as well as the opportunity to work with some of the kindest providers and staff in San Francisco. We live by our mission to show human kindness to all people, and to treat the under-served in our community.
