Job Description

Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care, located in Penetanguishene, Ontario is seeking Child & Adolescent Psychiatrists, Pediatricians and Family Physicians with a focused practice in Mental Health to join our dynamic team of health professionals.

Located on beautiful Georgian Bay, Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care provides specialized adult inpatient and outpatient psychiatric care for the North Simcoe Muskoka region. Outpatient care for the Family Child and Youth Mental Health Program is based at the new Community Health Hub in Midland.

Position Details

You will have experience in diagnosing and treating common mental health conditions seen in children and youth from a trauma-informed, culturally-aware, developmental and family systems perspective. Knowledge of psychopharmacology is required. The desire to function as a member of a multi-disciplinary team is essential. Non-clinical work such as community advocacy around mental health, systems improvement and education will be a key element of this role.

This is an outpatient clinic position and care will be provided both virtually and in-person at the Community Health Hub in Midland, or at regional affiliated primary care settings. Travel in the Midland and North Simcoe Muskoka Region will be required to successfully perform duties. This position has home-based on-call responsibilities as well. Bilingualism would be an asset but not required.

The position is generously remunerated through an Alternate Payment Plan from the Ontario Ministry of Health, with a base salary and a proportion of shadow billings.
