About the Job As a Psychiatrist for CIA, you will provide medical care and advice to Agency employees, dependents, and other Agency sponsored people. Utilizing your medical expertise in a primarily consultative model, you will help advance the CIA mission where it intersects with psychiatric and broader behavioral issues. Variability of mental health resources around the world, access limitations to care in different regions, and mission requirements are all at play in your efforts to deliver the best opinions possible. You’ll work and coordinate with a global set of USG medical and psychiatric colleagues while delivering care and consultation in various countries and under a multiplicity of clinical scenarios.
The capacity and commitment to serve globally is essential. Physicians spend most of their careers serving in multi-year assignments in a variety of overseas locations, but some opportunities exist to serve in the Washington, DC area.
As part of our team you will receive excellent benefits and a variety of medical and non-medical training will be provided. Sign on incentives and moving expenses are reimbursed.
Who You’ll Work With At the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), we recognize our Nation’s strength comes from the diversity of its people. People from a broad range of backgrounds and viewpoints work at CIA, and our diverse teams are the reason we can keep our country safe.
