Children's Healthcare of Atlanta is seeking a collaborative leader with a strong clinical foundation to serve as a Psychiatrist for a new Clinic opportunity within Children's Behavioral and Mental Health (BMH).

Outpatient Referral Clinic

Children’s is working to combat the stigma related to behavioral and mental health while also ensuring our most vulnerable patients receive access to outpatient services that will improve their quality of life and ability to thrive. The goal is to better serve this population of patients and increase the continuity of their care, moving towards a more connected model of “whole-child” care. The Outpatient Referral Clinic will serve as a “hub” for the organization, providing a key point of access for internal providers to refer kids to who require more BMH care than they can obtain at their current place of care within the system.
