The applicant will also perform clinical skills verification examinations (CSV’s) as needed, serve as Global Outpatient supervisor for an identified psychiatry house staff, and participate in resident recruitment and interviewing as able. The applicant will be welcomed and expected to share their expertise in core curriculum development/delivery, medical student teaching, Journal Clubs, Evidence-Based Medicine Seminars, and Grand Rounds.
The successful candidate will be expected to attend Faculty Meetings within the Department of Psychiatry; at minimum this will include Academic Staff, All-Staff, Physicians Meetings, and other administrative meetings deemed necessary by their reporting supervisor.
