The California Neuromodulation Institute seeks outstanding psychiatric nurse practitioners to join an innovative, growing private practice in the San Francisco East Bay region. We are primarily dedicated to patients with depression and anxiety conditions. Our program combines conventional clinical pharmacology with ketamine and transcranial magnetic stimulation (and many of our patients are in concurrent psychotherapy elsewhere). This is a low-impact clinical environment with excellent outcomes for our patients, and a strong emphasis on high-quality care, solid relationships with our partners in the community, career-long learning, and innovation. The position also has much flexibility in schedule and location, with telehealth service available, and office locations in easily-accessible and highly-desirable locations in Lafayette and San Ramon. This is a unique opportunity to gain clinical experience, training and mentoring with the director (Dr. Michael Minzenberg), who has taught this work to generations of trainees at several leading medical schools. You may also help drive the future growth and direction of the program.
