CATCH (Consult for Addiction Treatment and Care in Hospitals)
Implementation of CATCH is a critical component of the Mayoral Healing NYC initiative – in which the New York City Health + Hospitals will become a system of excellence, delivering increased and effective opioid services.
Addiction consultation services provided by CATCH teams are designed to address needs for addiction care expertise in service settings where traditionally it has been absent. There is a high number of patients being diagnosed with substance Use Disorder (SUD) across H+H (50K per year) and a very low number of these patients enrolling in addiction treatment (4K per year). With an initial focus on inpatient services, CATCH teams will be a critical means for engaging patients identified with SUD, treating them, and providing a connection to ongoing care.
As such, we are currently accepting applications for an Addiction Medicine Physician to champion this new program. Three separate positions available located at:
Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center
Coney Island Hospital.
In this role, you will collaborate with an integrative team of mental health clinicians to provide addiction treatment services – including: - Inpatient Care - Community Based Treatment - SUD Specialty Care - Buprenorphine in Primary Care - Post Discharge Care
Requirements for this position: - Completion of accredited US based Residency / Fellowship Training Program - Eligible for licensure in state of NY - ABMS BE/BC
