One of the most popular questions I get over email is in regards to telemedicine for psychiatrists. What is it with you guys and wanting to get out of face-to-face visits? Just kidding, I know exactly what draws you to telepsychiatry. It’s the flexibility and a change of pace.
Here are a few telepsychiatry jobs I’ve come across and how much they pay and their requirements. Enjoy. And stop emailing me.
The job is posted for North Carolina but they prefer doctors who have multiple state medical licenses. Of course, it’s a remote job for the digital nomad physician.
They want you to be board certified in Psychiatry. You must have had 3 years of clinical experience.
American Well is the first telemedicine company I ever worked for. Great company. They are offering $150/hour for a telepsychiatry position.
They require you to be board certified in Psychiatry and you cannot be a white coat criminal. They are hiring for all states but, as always, the more state medical licenses you have, the better.
Iris Telehealth is looking for psychiatrists and nurse practitioners to do remote telepsychiatry.
They do inpatient and outpatient and are looking for all sorts of subspecialties, child and addiction, etc. They are looking for doctors with TX or OR state medical licenses.
They are looking for you to have 2 years of clinical experience. They even offer a full-time position with benefits.
You must be board certified through ABPN and must have 2 years of experience. They prefer for you to have telepsych experience – another reason to jump on this bandwagon sooner rather than later.
Regroup is looking for a telepsychiatrist in Iowa – it’s a state close to California, somewhere below Canada.
They are actually offering a part-time position here. And you must be board certified through ABPN.
Telecare is probably a recruiting agency. They offer about $80/hour for a telepsychiatrist. Currently looking for one in Washington.
They have jobs for both physicians and PMHNP’s (NP’s).
Universal Health Services
UHS is offering a telepsychiatrist position and they are looking for all state medical board licenses. It’s not listed how much they pay.
T-Psychiatry is likely another recruiting agency. They are looking for a 2-month full-time position for a child psychiatrist. Paying $160/hour.
The position is for a Texas physician. No mention of requirements such as board certification or experience.
When it comes to telemedicine, it’s important that you get your experience now, before the guidelines become too strict. Competition in the telepsychiatry space is only increasing. This means that many companies will only look to hire those with previous telepsychiatry experience.
If you don’t want to sign up with one of these companies, consider offering your services to your own patients. You can build a solid telepsychiatry practice through VSee.
You can also approach other local private psych offices and offer them cross coverage or medical refills. The volume will be lower but the requirements will likely be less strict.
