We have a beautiful group of humans working together at Sharp HealthCare (Mesa Vista Hospital) in San Diego. Together we provide really excellent clinical care AND we train doctoral students, interns and fellows. We all like each other a lot and we share strong values of kindness, social justice, humility, work-life-balance, creativity, curiosity, authenticity and humor. Our practice is informed by science, the recovery model, trauma-informed care, person-centered care and by our individual and collective values. 

There are several psychologist positions open at Sharp right now. The two I am recruiting for are direct service positions that are central in our training programs.

  • Senior Intensive Outpatient Program – This person should have a passion for working with older adults and a strong foundation in functional-contextualism, ACT and in other therapies under the big CBT umbrella. This person will supervise a doctoral intern and a doctoral practicum student. The SIOP has been at Sharp for almost 20 years. There is a close nit group of therapists and nurses who run the program. It is primarily group-based, and all the clinicians share intake, treatment planning, and case management responsibilities. The person leaving the role worked 32 hours per week, but the person coming into the role has the flexibility stay at .8 or increase to 1.0 (i.e., 40 hours). 
  • Adult Inpatient – This person should have a passion for working with adults in inpatient behavioral health and a strong foundation in , the recovery model, trauma-informed care, person-centered care, functional-contextualism, ACT and in other therapies under the big CBT umbrella. Strong Psychological Assessment skills are a plus, but not required. This is a full-time position.The psychologist role involves group, individual and milieu therapy, supervision of doctoral students, and clinical leadership on the interprofessional team. There is opportunity for involvement in hospital committees and work groups (e.g., trauma-informed care, zero suicide initiatives, the Sharp Equality Alliance, family-centered care) and more.

The base salary is over $100k annually (fulltime), and could be higher depending on years of experience. Sharp has a very generous benefits package including over 5 weeks of paid time off (not including sick leave), retirement matching, reimbursement for continuing education costs, medical, dental, optical insurance and more. Sharp is a nonprofit and our employees meet criteria for federal loan repayment programs. We prefer licensed people, because there are supervision duties associated with both positions. However, we will consider strong candidates who are close to licensure.

Please email or call me if you are interested in either position and I will instruct you further on how to apply. I am happy to answer questions.
