As a major provider in Alberta’s integrated health system, the Covenant family (Covenant Health, Covenant Care, and Covenant Living) works with Alberta Health Services and community partners to positively influence the health of Albertans through a broad range of programs and services in our hospitals, health centres and continuing care centres.
The successful candidate will join another child psychiatrist in the Child Health Clinic in seeing outpatient referrals from community physicians for psychiatric consults at the modern and custom-designed clinic space at the Grey Nuns Community Hospital.
The successful candidate will also have responsibilities for supporting the mental health needs of patients in the Pediatrics for Kids in Care (PKIC) program, working with a multidisciplinary team (physicians, nurse practitioners, unit manager, RN, LPN, social worker, case workers, and admin support) at the same site.
The program works in partnership with Child and Family Services (CFS), with a focus on the well-being and medical needs of at risk and often socially vulnerable children. This program provides children in care with a medical home for consistency of care. The program collaborates across medical disciplines and within multiple government ministries (Education, Justice, Children’s Services and Health). The program provides education to medical learners at various levels of training.
The successful candidate will have at least 2 years clinical experience. A thorough understanding of the mental health needs of children who experience physical and emotional trauma is essential. Having a working knowledge of Family and Child Services is an asset. Familiarity with Connect Care is an asset. The successful candidate should have necessary interpersonal skills to successfully collaborate with academic and community colleagues.
