Georgetown University's Division of Student Affairs contributes to the establishment of a student-centered learning community that fosters educational and personal development and is dedicated to the Jesuit tradition of care for self and others - cura personalis.  

The Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) serves as the university's primary mental health agency for its students and campus community. Our central mission is to collaborate directly with students in overcoming difficulties that may interfere with the definition and accomplishment of their educational, personal, and career goals. Accordingly, CAPS strives to provide students with opportunities to develop greater self-understanding, identify and solve problems, and improve academic performance through the alleviation of psychological, emotional, and cognitive impediments. Our mission often extends beyond the consultation room and into the campus community. Through outreach, partnerships, and consultation initiatives to faculty, staff, parents, and other campus offices, CAPS seeks to promote psychological health as a value to the Georgetown community. 

The Staff Psychiatrist (50-75% time) will join - commencing fall 2017 - our team of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and psychiatric resident trainees.  Duties involve patient consultation, assessment, medication management, and consultation with faculty and staff.
