About the psychiatrist position

  • You are involved in intakes, drawing up and executing treatment plans and diagnostics. The somatic screening and treatment are performed by primary care physicians and addiction specialists.
  • You demonstrate clinical leadership: you take control, you are a sparring partner for your colleagues, you participate in innovative projects and you contribute to the substantive development of the team.
  • You participate together with doctors, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and nurse specialists of the medical team in the (daily) professional multidisciplinary consultations of the Dutch and international treatment teams.
  • You are available for consultation by our practitioners.
  • You can count on a competitive salary based on the mental health care collective labor agreement (fwg ams), good fringe benefits (including travel allowance and an excellent pension scheme through PFZW) and a personal budget. This personal budget is for continuing education, the costs of attending conferences, courses, training and symposia, as well as the costs for various professional associations.
  • You are available for at least three days a week.
  • Your hours are determined in consultation. Preferably we are looking for someone for 3 days a week.
  • You work in a unique, green place and you can use the swimming pool and fitness room for free at certain times. In order to encourage a healthy life and physical exercise, we offer the opportunity to exercise at a sports club under attractive conditions and to use a lease bicycle.


I like working at U-center, because here we look at people as a whole and not just the diagnoses. We strive for excellent care taking into account everyone's strength and knowledge. You get to know the clients in a few weeks and see them grow during treatment.
