“For the last sixteen years, I have practiced Correctional Medicine and I love it. There is never a dull moment; seeing interesting and complex medical patients in a safe environment. I have excellent nursing and administrative support, work part time, and really enjoy working as part of a multidisciplinary team. There is ‘no overhead’ working in the jail and enjoy good remuneration. I would recommend working in Correctional Medicine to anyone with experience in mental health and addictions and has a desire to make a difference in the lives of inmate-patients.”
