Compensation has changed and is now on a new fee-for-service model  It works like this; you will receive $100.00/hour for all billable hours and $50.00/hour for all approved non-billable hours (Staff meetings, Supervisors, Training or other approved meetings).   In addition you would be eligible for benefits (medical, dental, vision).  Initial visits are one hour for adults and 1.5 hours for children and teens; follow-up visits are 30 minutes in length. You typically would see around 12 patients per day with an expectation of six billable hours per day in a typical 8 hour day. SO that is $600.00 plus another $100.00/day for the non-billable time or $700.00/day.  If you were to work a full-time position that means your income is in excess of $154,000 and that is taking an entire month off in the year!

This is a full time position (30 to 40 hours per week) providing psychiatric evaluations and ongoing medication management to children, adolescents and adults at the Sweetser Sanford office. Benefits package available.
