Department Overview

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 psychiatrists, PMHNPs, physician assistants, psychologists, neuropsychologists and 20-24 psychiatry 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. 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 work as a clinician and educator.  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 and 60-minute slots available for combined psychotherapy and medication management.

Faculty are expected to participate in monthly departmental and clinic meetings and attend weekly, CME-accredited Grand Rounds/M&M presentations.
