Monday through Friday
A member of the Mayo Clinic Network, WellStar Health System is an 10-hospital system, recognized as the 5th most integrated health system in the United States, and one of the largest health systems in Georgia.
WellStar is committed to investing in the communities we serve. We continue to develop innovative care models, focused on improving quality and access to healthcare. To this end, the WellStar Medical Group is excited to announce an opportunity for an outpatient psychiatrist to support the needs of the Wellstar South Cobb market in Austell, GA.
Located in south Cobb County, Wellstar Cobb Hospital is a 382-bed hospital serving a diverse west Atlanta suburban population. Wellstar Cobb offers a continuum of psychiatric services, including a free-standing 32-bed adult inpatient behavioral health unit, a 7-day per week consultation-liaison psychiatry service, and a new outpatient psychiatric clinic.
The outpatient psychiatrist provides psychiatric services in an ambulatory clinic located on the Wellstar Cobb Hospital campus.

Overview of Duties/Responsibilities
This is a full-time 40 hour per week position, with time allocated to the provision of outpatient psychiatric services. The work schedule entails a Monday through Friday schedule, with services offered primarily in-person, but when necessary via the use of a telepsychiatry platform.
Services are provided at the new Wellstar Cobb Psychiatry clinic, which is approximately 20 miles west of midtown Atlanta on I-20. The psychiatrist functions as a member of the WellStar Medical Group’s Behavioral Health team – a team comprised of ~50 licensed behavioral health providers. On a daily basis, the psychiatrist will work closely with members of the Cobb behavioral health team and should be fully integrated with the Cobb Medical Staff. Although this is an outpatient position, the clinician will obtain and maintain hospital privileges at WellStar Cobb Hospital and may have occasional responsibilities for overseeing the work of an advanced practitioner – a responsibility shared with other Cobb psychiatrists. Openness to the use of telepsychiatry to achieve the clinic’s aims is required.

(S)He should be comfortable working with adults and older adults with various psychiatric conditions. The willingness to work with patients with substance use disorders and severe mental illness is needed given the demographics and population within the south Cobb region. Qualifications
