Part-Time Medical Director Needed for Innovative Group Practice in Roslindale Village.

The Company: 

The Leggett Group is a new and innovative group psychotherapy practice that has combined high-quality clinical services with a supportive, smart, collegial environment that is involved in and gives back to the vibrant Roslindale community.  We are a group of highly-skilled therapists who have been successful on our own, but who prefer to work in a collaborative environment where working, learning and innovating together as a team are key.  We are a team that learns from one another, while also setting goals for areas in which we’d like to grow together.  We provide individual, couples and group therapies, as well as community-targeted offerings such as workshops, and support groups that provide growth, prevention and maintenance options for people seeking something different than traditional therapy.

The Position: 

The Leggett Group is seeking a part-time Medical Director that would:

  • want to work collaboratively with our strong, talented team
  • provide some consultative oversight to our cases in which medication is a treatment modality
  • see a caseload of med-only individuals who also participate in psychotherapy with other providers here
  • have the option to maintain a caseload of integrated treatment patients themselves (prescribe meds and provide psychotherapy, whether it be individual, couples, family, or group)
  • have a skill set that includes treating a broad range of diagnoses, and who is trained (or training) to see one of our special populations: nursing or pregnant women needing a safe medication plan
  • be growth-oriented, working with our Director and team to continue to tweak and re-devise direction, strategy, and position for this dynamic and recognized growing practice.


Our offices are in a gorgeous, brand-new, high-end, state-of-the-art office building in Roslindale Square, facing Adams Park.  The office is handicapped accessible, and is easily accessible by car (on street and close-by public lot parking), or public transit with a commuter rail stop 2 blocks away, and 9 bus lines converging in front of building.

  • RNCS, NP, or MD who is trained in prescribing for a broad spectrum of diagnoses, as well as particular experience in perinatal mental health.
  • You have solid experience (5+ years post-license) or you are a rock star with less experience and great potential.
  • You possess the desire to work for someone else while being a part of a high-energy, collaborative, growth-oriented team that loves what it does and wants to try new things.
  • You welcome the idea of sharing and acquiring knowledge together, as the group participates in clinical meetings and trainings together, based on group-set goals.
  • You would welcome the idea of not having to do marketing, insurance business and client recruitment while working with us, and would enjoy coming into a space where your work is all ready for you to do.
  • You enjoy thinking about client needs and service delivery from a community-based perspective; you value the community of Roslindale and it’s surrounding neighbors.
  • You like to be valued, asked for your opinion, and respected in your place of work.
