The UMass Memorial Health Care Department of Psychiatry is the largest provider of psychiatric services in central Massachusetts, serving needs within UMass Memorial Health Care, the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and the public sector.

Community Healthlink (CHL) started as a community mental health agency and has evolved to its current role as a key member organization at UMass Memorial Health. We seek a BE/BC psychiatrist to serve as Associate Medical Director, CHL due to current volume and expansion as well as pending CBHC (Correctional Behavioral Health Certification).

The Associate Medical Director, CHL will supervise psychiatric professionals and participate in strategic, program, and policy development efforts. Outpatient and inpatient clinical participation is flexible based on candidate interests and faculty involvement at UMass Medical School.

  • Rehabilitation services for adults with serious mental illness (by DMH referral)
  • Substance abuse treatment services for adults and adolescents, including inpatient programs, residential recovery treatment, and outpatient counseling

  • Geriatric behavioral health consultation services
As the second largest city in New England, Worcester has powered a rise of booming technology, research, manufacturing, and healthcare industries. The area is rich in history and cultural diversity and has a variety of affordable housing options from newly renovated condominiums to gracious Victorian homes.

Accordingly, the Department seeks qualified candidates who can contribute to racial equity, diversity, and inclusion through service, mentorship, teaching, and scholarship. Further, the Department is keenly interested in diversifying its faculty and staff and encourages applications from diverse candidates.
