Internal or Family Medicine Physician 

Clinical Assistant Professor 
Center for Precision Mental Health and Wellness, Translational Precision Mental Health Clinic 
Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences 
Stanford University School of Medicine 

 The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine is seeking a full-time faculty member to provide clinical care in a new initiative for personalized, biologically-based psychiatry that aligns with the School of Medicine’s focus on precision health and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science’s focus on precision mental health. 

We are seeking physicians motivated by the opportunity to focus their expertise in a setting in which biological insights about mood disorders are directly translated from research to clinic. 

Physician applicants must have a medical degree or equivalent degree, completed training in Internal or Family Medicine with a particular interest in mental health, especially mood disorders. Applicants will possess or be fully eligible for a California medical license. Duties of this position entail reviewing prior medical and psychiatric records, conducting physical exams and measuring vital signs, performing comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, and developing a treatment plan in collaboration with the Director of the Translational Precision Mental Health Clinic using all information gathered about a patient. This information may include results from cognitive testing, blood tests, pharmacogenetic data, and functional MRI. The position will also entail the clinical management of participants in research trials involving experimental and novel therapies, including ketamine, Schedule I substances, medications that are FDA-approved for other conditions (e.g. pramipexole, guanfacine), and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). Ketamine administration will require starting IV lines. The physician will work closely with the Director of the Clinic, and be part of a thriving clinical translational team.
