Consultant Psychiatrist - Private Practice

Perfect time to step out on your own - High-salary potential for a Private Specialist Psychiatrist just 20 minutes from Sydney's CBD - Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist

  • Have more freedom and professional independence.
  • Manage your own patient load and create a healthy work-life balance.
  • Build a lucrative inpatient and outpatient private practice.
The Opportunity
Research shows that psychiatry is one of the best financially rewarded careers in Australia today, with psychiatry ranking in the top 10 jobs in the country and psychiatrists earning more than many of their medical colleagues. Since the endorsement of the National Mental Health Strategy in April 1992 there has been substantial growth in the private psychiatric hospital sector. 
Running your own practice presents different challenges to working in the public sector; however, it is no secret that doctors earn significantly more in private practice. If you have the drive to work hard, you could earn up to $750k per annum!
This well-established private practice is seeking an experienced Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist to help build their adolescent services.
The Hospital 
This 86 bed private psychiatric hospital offers specialised inpatient, outpatient and day treatment programs using a holistic approach to care. With an adjacent Medical Centre supporting the hospital with specialised medical consulting rooms, treatment programs include drug and alcohol, mood disorder, anxiety and depression, perinatal, personality disorder, psychogeriatric disorder and psychotic disorders.
The hospital is currently struggling to meet patient demand and is turning business away; real opportunities exit for you to quickly establish a lucrative and uncapped private practice.
The Location 
Only 20 minutes from Sydney CBD, this multicultural community provides both families and singles the flexibility of living just minutes away from the city and still having the joys of suburban living. This city boasts a large shopping strip along the main road and is well accommodated with public transport or buses and trains. 
VMO psychiatrists working at this hospital have billed $250K in their first 12 months, working only 2 days per week. 
By joining this large private hospital group you will benefit from internal referrals and significant support to establish your practice; reduced room rental including full secretarial support; and flexible working arrangements to suit your individual lifestyle. 
Whether you want to transition completely in to private practice or combine public and private work there is complete flexibility to accommodate your needs.
Essential Criteria
You must have FRANZCP or be close to obtaining fellowship, current registration with AHPRA and an unrestricted provider number with Medicare. 
Experience in private psychiatry is not essential to transition into this exciting next phase of your career.
