This is an exciting and innovative post offered as a part of Island Health’s commitment to enhance the use of service delivery using technology. Telepsychiatry has established itself as a proven and useful way of providing specialist services to remote locations and areas with paucity of specialist services. This post aims to provide access to Psychiatric expertise using real time synchronous videoconferencing.



This is an opportune time to join the Island Health Telepsychiatry service. Island Health is in the process of adopting a novel telehealth platform that can be used from outside Island health sites with patients using their own devices.

The candidates will have the option to participate in the development and adoption of this new platform, in partnership with the Telehealth department.



The successful candidate will be expected to provide remote psychiatric consultations and manage patients in the community in collaboration with General Practitioners. The candidate will have the opportunity to develop flexible and new ways of delivering services with the support of the excellent Telehealth team.



Clinical documentation will be maintained according to the evolving Island Health standards.



Island Health is part of the UBC Faculty of Medicine Island Medical Program and the candidate will be encouraged to seek a teaching appointment with the University, Department of Psychiatry. Island Health has applied to the Postgraduate committee to establish an elective post in telepsychiatry to provide exposure and training to residents in this area.



Laptop, telehealth equipment and software will be provided by Island Health
