About Legion Psychiatry:

Legion is a pioneering, tech-enabled psychiatry network focused on delivering world-class outpatient care. Our providers—the most talented psychiatric providers in the country—are passionate about expanding mental health care access for those with insurance.

Our innovative model combines the stability of a traditional hospital position with the flexibility of a private practice. We prioritize our clinicians' well-being and professional growth, offering a competitive compensation package and fostering a vibrant, collaborative culture.

Quality and patient experience are paramount to us. This means recruiting exceptional providers, championing evidence-based protocols, and displaying compassion in every patient interaction. Our exceptional team operates with clinical autonomy, supported by experienced psychiatrists.

Our vision is to pioneer a new era of mental health by delivering world-class psychiatry. We believe in a future where every patient can access the compassionate psychiatric care they need, regardless of the insurance they have.

About the role:

We are seeking a clinically excellent and patient-centered psychiatrist to join our team at Legion Psychiatry. The ideal candidate will embrace our vision of expanding access to world-class psychiatric care by leveraging technology and serving patients across all insurance types.

In this role, the psychiatrist will primarily deliver direct patient care and also serve as a collaborating/supervising physician. This involves providing high-quality care to patients and working with our PMHNPs to ensure the highest standard of care.

Benefits:

  • Flexibility: Set your own schedule for optimal work-life balance.
  • Work from Home: See patients from the comfort of your home via telehealth.
  • Significant Administrative Support: Focus on patient care, not on patient scheduling, insurance verification, billing, prior authorizations, pharmacy coordination, etc.
  • Clinical Autonomy: We hire the most skilled providers and trust them to do what’s best for patients.
  • Patient Acquisition: Unlike with a private practice, we’ll work to fill your schedule, so you don’t have to do your own marketing.
  • Competitive Pay: We compensate our providers at market-leading rates, reflecting your experience and performance.
  • Weekly Pay: We pay our providers every week for immediate financial benefit and planning ease.
  • Legal Protection: We provide full malpractice insurance coverage.
  • Technical Support: We cover the costs for you to have best-in-class EHR and e-Prescribe tools.
  • Credentialing Support: We handle all aspects and costs of credentialing with a large number of insurance plans, including commercial, ACA, and government, ensuring your legal and effective authorization within insurance networks.
  • Commitment to Quality Care: Psychiatric intakes are 1 hour, and follow-ups are 30 minutes (as they should be).
  • Tools for Responsible Prescribing: We have rigorous, evidence-based protocols and provide objective diagnostic tools to ensure responsible and ethical prescriptions of controlled substances.
  • Community of Clinical Excellence: You will work alongside the most talented psychiatrists and PMHNPs in the world. Our current providers have trained at prestigious institutions, including Vanderbilt, UT Austin, Johns Hopkins, Columbia, NYU, and UTHealth Houston.
  • Opportunities for Professional Growth: As we expand, we intend to promote clinical leadership from the best of our active providers.
  • Culture of Excellence through Innovation: Actively participate in ushering in a new era of mental health care through superior clinical care and technology.
  • Licensure Coverage: We’ll reimburse you for all fees associated with getting licensed in other states as required by Legion.
  • Resources: We provide premium subscriptions to resources such as UpToDate and Carlat.
  • Exclusive Events: Engage with your colleagues through exclusive in-person and virtual events.

Responsibilities

Direct Patient Care:

  • Excellent Patient Care: Evaluate and treat patients with conditions like depression, anxiety, ADHD, insomnia, PTSD, and bipolar disorder. Perform comprehensive psychiatric assessments, including mental health, medical history, and risk analysis. Use novel evidence-based treatments.
  • Compassionate Care Culture: Promote an environment of compassion, respect, and empathy in patient interactions and care approaches.
  • Holistic Treatment: Create and execute tailored treatment plans, combining medication and brief psychotherapy, in teamwork with other mental health and medical professionals.
  • Innovation in Treatment: Explore and integrate new therapeutic techniques and technologies to enhance patient outcomes and care efficiency.
  • Professional Growth: Participate in case reviews with peers to enhance clinical skills and foster ongoing learning.

Nurse Practitioner Collaboration:

  • Collaborative Care: Collaborate with highly-experienced, highly-trained, and compassionate PMHNPs who treat low- and medium-risk psychiatry patients using evidence-based treatments.
  • Accessibility Mission: Directly contribute to Legion's vision of making world-class psychiatric care much more accessible to patients, regardless of insurance.
  • Prescription Management: Approve and send prescriptions through our EMR & eRX system.
  • Mentorship: Mentor other psychiatric providers to ensure that each patient is getting the highest-quality care possible.
