The core values and priorities of the UW Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences reflect the influences of the Northwest, a still emerging section of the country that is blessed with remarkable beauty, tremendous natural and cultural resources, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a highly educated populace. In its relatively short history (established in 1945), the UW School of Medicine (SOM) has emerged as the leading public medical school in NIH research funding while simultaneously ranking as the number one rated medical school in primary care training. This is a highly unusual juxtaposition of achievements, due in large part to the energy and talent of the faculty but also because, as the one medical school serving five Northwest states, the SOM has responsibility for the health care and health care workforce needs of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho (WWAMI).The Department is pursuing a balanced commitment to knowledge discovery, teaching excellence, and high-quality clinical care by capitalizing on the resources of our vibrant academic and regional community. As would be expected, our research portfolio is on a trajectory of progressive growth, even in this challenging funding climate. The Department's research priorities are reflected in our divisions and major programs, as illustrated on our website: http://www.uwpsychiatry.org/
Each successful candidate will serve as an attending at SCH and related clinics and will teach and supervise trainees. Seattle Children's provides a wide continuum of programming for children in the Pacific Northwest that cover that address community based prevention. A PhD or foreign equivalent is required. The individuals in these positions will also be expected to develop a program of research which can be focused on developmental psychopathology, prevention/intervention science, integrated care, or implementation/dissemination science. Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Health is a focus program at SCH and receives extraordinary support for its important role in the Northwest.
