The Division of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at Cincinnati Children’s is seeking a child and adolescent BE/BC psychiatrist with an interest in the treatment and diagnosis of eating disorders in youth at our Linder Center of Hope. Our Mental Health Team uses evidence-based approaches – proven to be the most advanced and most effective – to treat the full spectrum of child and adolescent mental and behavioral health problems.
Our Linder Center of Hope location provides intensive inpatient psychiatric services for adolescents ages 12-17 presenting with a range of mental health disorders, including eating disorders (EDO). The inpatient EDO program is looking for collaborative child psychiatrists to join a multidisciplinary team. Future growth includes re-opening of a partial hospitalization program (PHP) to provide intensive step-down care for youth with eating disorders and other mental health disorders. Eating disorder care provided at the Linder Center of Hope includes:
Direct support during meals and snacks for the patient and family support system
Monitoring of weights, vital signs, clinical labs
Active engagement with our Registered Dieticians for nutritional needs and meal planning
Oral and enteral supplementation to meet nutritional needs
Medical consultation with our Adolescent Medicine team
Goal setting that includes the patient and family support system
Individual supportive psychotherapy (daily on inpatient, twice per week in PHP)
Behavioral consultation with individualized behavioral interventions and safety plans
Daily EDO-specific DBT group therapy
Multiple, daily generalized goal-oriented and skill development CBT groups
FBT-informed family support and education
Community partnerships for continuity of EDO care to needed step-down PHP setting, residential care, and outpatient community services
Our Mental Health and Eating Disorder Teams are comprised of the Division of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, Division of Behavioral Medicine & Clinical Psychology, and the Division of Adolescent and Transition Medicine. We provide multidisciplinary outpatient, intensive outpatient and inpatient psychiatric and medical care to adolescents and young adults and are supported by:
32 Child Psychiatrists, including 10 Triple Board Trained Psychiatrists
18 Adolescent medicine physicians
150 Psychologists, including 3 psychologists who specialize in eating disorders
44 Psychiatric APRNs
119 masters-level therapists

The Eating Disorder Program at Cincinnati Children’s is an interdisciplinary, multi-level program serving children, teens, young adults and their families affected by eating disorders. The outpatient program housed within the Division of Adolescent and Transition Medicine in partnership with the Division of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology, and Division of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, offers evidence based, coordinated treatment from a group of 10 physicians, 3 psychologists, 2 dietitians, 2 nurse care managers and a psychiatric APRN. Annual new patient volume approached 600 new cases and a medical stabilization unit at the CCHMC Liberty campus provided over 1,000 patient days of inpatient medical care to malnourished patients last year. Outpatient EDO services include medical treatment for complications of weight loss or purging, family therapy, individual therapy, one-on-one dietician?appointments, personalized meal plans and medication management.?
A generous benefits package includes 5 weeks of vacation, 1 week for CME, relocation if needed, retirement contribution, life/disability insurance, and malpractice coverage.
