    • The psychiatrists really are like 3rd call, in that a therapist will evaluate the patient and contact the resident to determine if the patient can be admitted to one of the BH units at FBCH. The resident will then be in communication with the psychiatrist. During the week, this communication occurs over the phone. On the weekends (and holidays), the resident and the psychiatrist will round on the inpatient units together. The child psychiatrist will round on the inpatient adolescent unit and the adult psychiatrist will round on the inpatient adult unit and residential treatment facility (substance abuse 28 day unit). Psychiatrists are on call 1 week at a time and currently are on call about once every 4-6 months. *I have openings nationwide, so when applying please include your CV, all states of interest, and citizenship status: US Citizen, Green Card, J1, or H1 visa.
