Piedmont Geriatric Hospital (PGH) currently has two full-time psychologist positions available at our inpatient facility. This position is ideal for individuals seeking more inpatient experience, older adult experience, and experience with individuals with severe mental illness. The basic duties will include: individual and group psychotherapy, initial evaluations, behavior planning, neurocognitive evaluations and some forensic assessments (e.g., capacity and risk evaluations). This position is well suited for individuals who wish to pursue post-doctoral training and require additional supervision. We currently have three fully licensed psychologists on staff as well as one pre-doctoral intern and one post-doctoral fellow. Previous experience working with individuals with older adults is preferred but not required. A doctoral degree in psychology from a regionally accredited university or school of psychology is required.
