District Medical Group of Arizona (DMG) is seeing a Clinical Psychologist for a position at our new hospital in Maryvale, AZ. The facility is currently being renovated and projected to open April 2019. The population at our facilities consists primarily of individuals who are court ordered for psychiatric evaluations and/or treatment. Most individuals have a serious mental illness and are in need of inpatient care.
Candidates must have a degree in clinical psychology and be eligible for licensure in Arizona. The psychologist's primary responsibilities will include psychological assessment of hospitalized inpatients (personality, cognitive, intellectual and diagnostic testing) and behavior planning for inpatients who exhibit behavior considered dangerous to self or others.
