The University Neuropsychiatric Institute (UNI) and University of Utah Health are seeking a dynamic and experienced Psychologist for our new Young Adult Comprehensive Assessment and Treatment (YA CAT) Program at the UNI Murray location!
Our Psychologist will be working in the UNI Murray Building with all the responsibilities of an inpatient environment, and they will partner with the YA CAT Nurse Manager to maintain operational responsibilities associated with an off-site location, including the coordination and supervision of EVS, facilities management, and dietary services located in the building.
This position provides psychological assessment, diagnosis, and treatment services of a clinical nature through direct patient care and consultation to hospital and Neuropsychiatric Institute patients.
The Young Adult Comprehensive Assessment and Treatment (YA CAT) Program at the University Neuropsychiatric Institute is an elective service that offers a 4-8 week, comprehensive clinical evaluation for individuals of ages 18-30 in a residential environment with the capability of providing stabilization in a supervised setting, either before transitioning to the residential facility or if such stabilization is required following decompensation while at the residential facility.
Unlike an acute inpatient hospitalization, the duration of the YA CAT Program allows for the opportunity to conduct expansive diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. Such interventions include regular psychiatric and medical evaluation, psychological assessment, behavioral and educational/career/vocational assessment, and individual, family, and group psychotherapy.
The YA CAT Program utilizes a multi-disciplinary team of a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, nurses, career/vocational specialist, expressive therapists (music, art, and recreation), psychiatric technicians, and dietitians.
The comprehensive nature of the assessment helps to provide diagnostic clarity and guide recommendations for future therapeutic modalities and treatment levels of care.
The University of Utah is a Level 1 Trauma Center and is nationally ranked and recognized for our academic research, quality standards and overall patient experience. Our four hospitals and seventeen clinics provide excellence in our comprehensive services, medical advancement, and overall patient outcomes.
