Inova Health System is seeking an experienced Medical Director for Adolescent Psychiatry to join our Behavioral Health Service Line.

Opened in 2018 on the Inova Fairfax Medical Campus our state -of- the -art inpatient adolescent psychiatry unit provides psychiatric care for adolescents (ages 14–17) who require stabilization and short-term treatment for emotional, behavioral and psychological disorders.

We operate on a three -pronged model of care: The first is trauma informed care. The second is patient and family centered care. We strive to provide care that is specific to each individual and within the context of the family. Lastly, our staff is trained in Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) tools to identify lagging skills while resolving issues and difficulties in a collaborative and mutually satisfactory way. The Medical Director for Adolescent Inpatient Services will work in close alignment with the Inova Kellar Center providers to ensure seamless plans of care when adolescent patients transition across longitudinal treatment programs.
