Candidates should be energetic and motivated with a desire to build programs that will improve mental health care quality and access for the pediatric community that we serve and who possess the ability to work collaboratively with primary care and specialty pediatrics to improve care. Crisis evaluation and treatment experience (ideally pediatric hospital-based) and board certified or eligible in child and adolescent psychiatry required. Experience with clinical research, project development and fluency in Spanish would be a plus.
