Consultation-Liaison Psychiatrist
Department of Psychiatry
Rush University Medical Center
Chicago, IL

Rush University Medical Center, a nationally recognized clinical and academic institution and the teaching hospital for Rush Medical and Nursing Colleges, located in downtown Chicago, invites applications for the position of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatrist.

The Department of Psychiatry at Rush University Medical Center is recruiting a full-time consultation-liaison psychiatrist. The candidate will join the faculty of our interdisciplinary collaborative academic medical center, and supervise and teach residents, medical students and other trainees. This is a full-time position with academic rank and salary commensurate with experience. Completion of a consultation-liaison psychiatry fellowship or combined residency training in internal medicine and psychiatry is desirable.

The Consultation-Liaison service plays an integral role in psychiatric screening of candidates for solid organ transplantation and a component of this position would involve assessment of patients and psychiatric risk stratification prior to liver and kidney transplantation.  Rush University has over 300 current recipients of liver transplants, many of whom have coexisting psychiatric needs.  Support and counseling before and after transplantation, diagnosis and treatment of comorbid mood, anxiety, and substance use disorders, and psychopharmacological management of this population during their preoperative and postoperative course will be expected.  The position will involve close collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of transplant surgeons, hepatologists, nurse practitioners, social workers, and nurses in both the inpatient and outpatient setting.  Opportunities also exist for innovative delivery of care in other settings, including co-location in other medical and nonpsychiatric venues.
