Physician Evaluation Director

25 Hours per Week, Benefit Eligible Position

Physician Health Services (PHS), a nonprofit subsidiary of the Illinois Medical Society, is a comprehensive and nationally respected physician health program dedicated to improving the health, well-being, and effectiveness of physicians and medical students while promoting patient safety. Our program provides confidential consultation and support for a wide range of concerns including substance use disorders, behavioral or mental health issues, stress, burnout, and physical illness.

The Physician Evaluation Director will participate in all activities relating to the effective outreach, assessment, intervention and referral to treatment of physicians, residents and medical students. He or she will partner with PHS staff and external medical professionals to assist program participants, and will meet monthly with a subset of clients who require ongoing monitoring.

An M.D./D.O. degree, and an active, unrestricted license to practice medicine in Illinois are required (although, technically, the position does not involve care delivery). Board Eligibility or Certification in psychiatry is also required. Qualifications in Addiction Psychiatry or Forensic Psychiatry or certification by the American Board of Addiction Medicine (ABAM) are preferred.

Experience assessing and remediating substance use disorders, mental health disorders and unprofessional behavior is essential. Competence assessing personality problems, and utilizing practical methods to foster behavior change is important. The ability to evaluate, formulate and triage to the next level of care is also important. Excellent communication, presentation, negotiation and interpersonal skills are necessary, as the Physician Evaluation Director will play a leadership role at PHS, working closely with PHS’s director, Steve Adelman, MD. The Physician Evaluation Director will also have ample opportunity to represent the program in the external health care environment, locally and nationally.

Understanding of confidentiality laws and requirements that govern disclosure of patient and/or peer review records is important, as is sensitivity and experience in identifying overt and subtle boundary violations. Enthusiasm, excellent organizational skills, and passion for PHS’s mission to assist distressed physicians and medical students are essential.
