Organizational Unit Overview:

The Center for Telepsychiatry and e-Behavioral Health (CTeBH) is actively engaged in helping our field effectively deal with the problem of lack of access that can sometimes force patients to travel long distances to obtain mental health services or forgo such services altogether. Aside from helping address the problems associated with access to mental health care, telepsychiatry also has the potential to address a pressing and difficult challenge in healthcare delivery system today: the integration of science-based treatment practices into the routine clinical care. The Center is also the home for the North Carolina Statewide Telepsychiatry Program (NC-STeP), which connects more than 50 hospital emergency departments and health departments across the state of North Carolina to provide psychiatric assessments and consultations to patients linked using telemedicine technologies. The program also provides outpatient services to patients in 13 outpatient clinics across the state.

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine provides educational, clinical, and research training experiences to medical students; psychiatry and other medical residents; psychology students and interns; and other learners in both psychiatry and the broader area of psychosocial factors that influence health and illness. To accomplish that, the department employs professionals from several disciplines and collaborates with other medical school departments and health care organizations to operate multi-disciplinary specialty clinics and programs.

In serving its mission of providing excellence in patient care and service in mental health, the department operates several clinical service lines, covering a full spectrum of psychiatric disorders across the life span. We provide these services in both inpatient and outpatient settings. These services are offered at the department-operated outpatient centers, at Vidant Medical Center, and at various affiliated community sites across Eastern North Carolina.

As the department strives to foster a collaborative environment committed to improving the health and well being of the people of eastern North Carolina and beyond, and in service of its various missions, the department collaborates with various community-based programs. These collaborative programs, which may be staffed jointly by the department and the community program, provide educational opportunities for medical students and residents as well as opportunities for testing new models of treatment applicable to the evolving mental health care delivery systems.

Job Duties :

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine seeks an Advanced Practice Provider to provide a full range of psychiatric and other mental health services to patients and their families: to include the following initial assessment and recommendation for care; comprehensive psychiatric evaluations including a comprehensive mental status examination; diagnosis of psychiatric disorders based on DSM-5 criteria; crisis intervention as appropriate; prescribing non-pharmacologic cognitive, behavioral, and other psychotherapies; ongoing group and/or individual therapies; prescribing pharmacologic agents and providing ongoing medication management; ongoing management of laboratory reports (order, review, intervene); periodic evaluation of patient progress and future treatment recommendations; treatment of minor or chronic medical conditions that may co-exist with mental health conditions; participation in providing educational experiences for learners; and participation in development, implementation, evaluation, and outcome monitoring of clinical care provision. Duties will be performed under the guidelines established by the state board of medical examiners and in collaboration with a licensed physician.

These services are provided both face-to-face as well as via telepsychiatry/telehealth.
