Telepsychiatry Jobs FAQ

  • How many hours will I have to work?
    In order to cover our training and administrative costs ITP requires a minimum of 8 hours of care per week and has 40+ hours per week positions. Our shifts can range from 2 to 10 hour shifts.

 

 

  • Can I be on call using telepsychiatry instead of working a shift?
    Yes, ITP has opportunities to be on call. This can be done in conjunction with working specific shifts or independently. Being on call isn’t a requirement for contracting with ITP.

 

 

  • How will I get paid?
    ITP providers are independently contracted to provide psychiatric care and paid for a set block of time.

 

 

  • How is my pay determined?
    ITP pays a competitive hourly rate based on a provider’s credentials and experience.

 

 

  • What training is provided?
    You will receive comprehensive training on how to effectively use ITP’s video conferencing software. You will also be trained on accessing patient records and entering your notes into the electronic health record.

 

 

  • Will I be communicating with other members of the patient’s treatment team?
    In most cases, you will be part of a patient’s therapeutic team just as if you were physically located in the clinic or hospital. Before you know it you’ll have a hard time differentiating telepsychiatry from face-to-face psychiatry.

 

 

  • Can I use my own computer?
    Yes, since most people are more comfortable using a computer they’re familiar with, ITP provides the conferencing software to download to your computer. Any modern, relatively fast Window or Mac computer with processor speed of 2.2 GHz or faster with 4G of RAM will work fine. A 15 inch sized monitor or more is recommended.

 

 

  • Does it matter where I am when conferencing with a patient to provide care?
    Even though technology allows you to connect from almost anywhere to provide care, ITP expects our providers to conduct the highest level of professionalism when caring for patients. This means providing care from a quiet well lit location where your conversation with patients can’t be overheard. There needs to be minimal distractions and minimal interruptions when seeing patients. We recommend a room with the door closed in your home or clinic.
