Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Department of Psychiatry welcomes you to consider joining our growing ambulatory clinic. We are seeking a full-time Board Certified Adult Outpatient Psychiatrist to join our team in the provision of psychiatric care and resident supervision.


The OHSU Adult Outpatient Psychiatric Clinic is located at OHSU’s academic campus in SW Portland and is comprised of 9 psychiatrists, 3 PMHNPs, 4 psychologists, 3 neuropsychologists and 20-24 residents (PGY2-PGY4). We offer expert consultation, evaluation, and treatment for a wide variety of mental health conditions including: mood and anxiety disorders, OCD, trauma-related disorders, somatic symptom disorders, ADHD and others. We are highly committed to measurement-based care as a supporting piece of patient evaluation and engagement, and have partnered with a 3rd party to collect measures and integrate with the EPIC EMR. The clinic has robustly supported telecare during the COVID-19 pandemic, and plans to continue offering providers the opportunity to work remotely for a portion of their FTE on an ongoing basis.


An ideal candidate is a dynamic physician who embraces diversity, equity and inclusion in their growth as a clinician and teacher.  We seek providers who take interest in complex cases and quality improvement efforts.  As we are an academic center, we seek those driven to seek out and integrate current evidence and scholarly findings into their practice and teaching.

Appointment times for intakes and consultations are 60-90 minutes, 30 minutes for medication management with 60-minute slots available for psychotherapy or at provider discretion for complex case management.

Provision of psychotherapy is optional and limited to 0.1FTE. Outpatient psychiatric consultations are encouraged at 0.1FTE (2 consults per week). Clinical education of residents varies depending on desired role and will comprise up to 0.1FTE. Time for administrative tasks and approved scholarly and research activities will be built into your schedule.


Faculty take call 2-3 weeks per year. Call is comprised of in-person coverage of the inpatient C/L psychiatric services on weekend mornings (staffing with residents in-person) followed by after clinic hours call (supporting residents by phone) for the remainder of the week.
