The primary role of this position is to provide psychotherapy at OHSUs Joseph B. Trainer Health & Wellness Center (JBT) for students and post-doctoral scholars in the health sciences. Clinical responsibilities will involve providing a range of psychological services to a diverse student population. This includes ability to assess and treat psychological distress in order to support academic performance and augment overall well-being of our students and post-docs.
The specific duties of this position include psychological diagnostic evaluation, crisis intervention, and psychological counseling using individual, couple and group clinical methods. JBT emphasizes short-term duration of counseling whenever possible to facilitate timely access to services by OHSU students and post-docs. The professional hired for this position will serve as part of a unified mental health team consisting of multidisciplinary mental health professionals (e.g. psychologists, psychiatrists) and primary care providers (e.g. physicians, nurse practitioners, acupuncturists, massage therapists, nurses and medical assistants).
This position is under the direct supervision of the Associate Director of Behavioral Health at the JBT Health & Wellness Center. The clinician will work with others on the team to enhance access for patients, to ensure efficient use of clinic resources, to make appropriate use of external referrals, and to promote the accomplishment of the overall mission, goals and objectives of JBT. The hours of employment are negotiated annually with the Associate Director of Behavioral Health or her designee. Deviations from the assigned hours may be necessary to ensure adequate medical care for these patients. The clinician will work with other members of the team to provide continuity of care as needed. At the request of the Associate Director of Behavioral Health or her designee, the clinician may serve as liaison to other OHSU programs coordinating with JBT, which may include giving talks or seminars. This is a fast paced clinic, and the hired clinician will be expected to independently and efficiently manage a large and complex caseload of clients.
