PSYCHIATRIC MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS, Inc, a Physician owned and run professional group, and currently we are seeking FT/PT Providers that are interested in practicing TelePsychiatry in California.


All our work is outpatient-based practice in clinics, we do not provide ER, urgent care or on-call work. There is consistency of work, and the clinics you practice in are the clinics you grow in. Given the variability of work in community health centers (60%) and department of mental health (county mental health clinics - 40%), you can shift between one or the other, based on your preferences.


There is no need to change jobs over time since you would have a choice from current 81 clinics we service and additional 12 clinics we will be starting by July 1st, 2019. Mind you it is not Locum Tenens, and we expect only sincere career providers to join !


PMPI offers VERY competitive wages in many cases more than the traditional Psychiatry Jobs. TelePsychiatry job growth has increased 3 fold in the last few years and continues to do so exponentially. 

Most of our current Psychiatrists are doing per-diem work with us (1099), your income potential can range from $ 162.50 an hour to up to $ 260 an hour, depending on how many patients you can see in the hour

(2-4 patients). Most of our Psychiatrists have their own health insurance.


As a Psychiatrist,


In our community health center (CHC) clinics:

$ 260,000.00 to $ 396,000 or more/year based on 40 hrs a week and 50 weeks a year work (seeing 2-4 patients in an hour), an average income is running around $360,000 yearly. This is recommended for Psychiatrists who want to assume private practice like work, as income is based on efficiency and number of patients seen. 

We do have some CHC's which are on hourly models (rates below), but pace of patients is faster than DMH below. These clinics have routine low acuity patients referred by PCP's to stabilize them, or manage them. 


In our department of mental health (DMH) clinics:  

With our rates for hourly work of $ 150 - $ 165 (for most Psychiatrists), Starting base is $ 140, then you add $ 5 ea for Boards, Spanish, Practice Experience. A typical Psychiatrist can expect $300,000 to $330,000 yearly for similar hours. This work is slower paced and patient visits are 1 hr for Psych Evals and 30 min for follow up Psych Visits.


Additionally In leadership positions, eligible to be on our Medical Executive Committee, problem-solving and taking initiative in starting new clinics, and taking on NP supervision extra income potential of $ 30,000 to $ 45,000 as a stipend is available for qualified candidates.


As a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner


Nurse Practitioners: $ 70 to $ 85 hourly rate (Based on a scale and commensurate upon your training, Board Certification, Language Proficiency and Experience). Please arrange an interview to discuss where you would fall into the starting salary range. (NP range based on 40 hrs a week and 50 weeks a year work hours with above Psychiatric NP hourly pay range is from $130,000 to $170,000 yearly).


We will cover your Mal-Practice insurance as a group if you commit to 20 or more hours of work for us. In case you work 20 hours or less you will have to buy your own half time malpractice (half-time rates are generally half of the full-time practice rates).



There are limited clinics where hours of operation a day can be 10 hrs a day, you may inquire or prefer to be on a first come first serve basis to start work in those clinics. There is no weekend work available and no on-call is needed.

Now we provide 1350 plus hours a week of clinical work and support at 81 plus clinics (and growing) in the State of California, we have our own tech help, oversight, training, front-line help, cross-coverage, and low-risk outpatient practice environment, that is the reason why most of the doctors that joined us since 2008 are still working with us!
