These inpatient units provide continuing care treatment for DMH-eligible patients and forensic evaluations for individuals who present through the Massachusetts judicial system. All staff psychiatrists are board-certified or pursuing board certification.  No managed care. Weekend/night call is not required, although shifts are available.


As public sector intermediate care facilities, HPP/Polaris psychiatrists do not experience the pressures of managed care. This provides a unique opportunity for psychiatrists interested in providing treatment to a diverse population of psychiatric inpatients with severe and persistent mental illness in a continuing care environment.  The psychiatrist is the leader of a multidisciplinary team, and a wide range of treatment modalities are valued, including psychopharmacology, group therapy emphasizing skill-building, insight-oriented and cognitive behavioral psychotherapy, family interventions, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.


The psychiatrist group is energetic, well trained, welcoming and very collegial. Most have trained in Boston-area psychiatric residency programs, including the Harvard/Cambridge Hospital, the Harvard/Longwood programs, Tufts University School of Medicine, and Boston University School of Medicine. A significant number of our current psychiatrists maintain some level of academic participation with their training programs.
