San Mateo County is a national leader in community mental health services with a commitment to excellent care and to support the recovery of the people we serve. Our award-winning Psychiatric Residency Training Program is based at the Medical Center, and staff psychiatrists are invited to join the faculty and participate in training residents as well as the psychology interns. We also may soon have one or more openings for full-time, benefitted employment, so these extra-help positions offer the chance to see whether a long-term career here would be a good fit. San Mateo Medical Center has adopted the Soarian electronic health record for inpatient medical documentation and orders. Emergency department, admission, and discharge reports are dictated. Outpatient clinic records are maintained in eClinicalWorks (for primary care, internal medicine, and medical specialties) and Avatar (for outpatient mental health).
