The Dell Medical School Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, in conjunction with Seton Family of Doctors (“SFOD”) and Ascension Seton, is seeking a board certified/board eligible Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist to join our clinical faculty and serve on our outpatient clinical team in Austin, Texas. We seek a physician who will help our Department achieve our goal of working with our community partners to develop clinical, educational and research initiatives that revolutionize how people get and stay mentally healthy in Central Texas and beyond.

We seek candidates committed to providing exemplary care and treatment that restores hope and helps patients live healthier, fuller lives. A clinical assignment will occur through our Department's collaborations with Seton Healthcare Family with the physician providing clinical care in various outpatient settings as part of a multidisciplinary team. Primary responsibilities will include providing world-class medicine and clinical expertise to evaluate and treat a broad spectrum of mental health challenges in pediatric subspecialty clinics to provide integrated psychiatric care.

Additionally, a small portion of time will be allocated to the Behavioral Health Consult Liaison service which treats youth who are experiencing mental health conditions in conjunction with their medical presentation.

The physician would also provide psychiatric care to children and adolescents as part of the Community Psychiatry Workforce Expansion (CPWE) program. This program is part of recent legislative funding to increase access to pediatric mental health services across Texas.

The physician would also work with our Dell Children's Psychiatry Team to provide on-call coverage on our Mental Health Unit and within the hospital.

The successful candidate's appointment within the Department of Psychiatry at Dell Medical School requires regular participation in educational activities with medical students and residents. In addition, the physician will have the opportunity for collaborations that allow for the pursuit of innovative clinical programming and research initiatives.

The Dell Medical School, the first new medical school to be built at a tier-one research university in nearly fifty years, welcomed its inaugural class in 2016. The school is committed to redesigning academic medicine and revolutionizing how people get and stay healthy, by educating leaders, developing new models of care, and advancing innovation from health products to health care delivery. The Seton Healthcare Family is a member of Ascension Health, the largest not-for-profit health network in the nation.

Austin has been designated by US News & World Report as one of the top ten “Best Places to Live” for several years. This growing metropolis is considered “the live music capital of the world,” a high-tech growth hub, and home to one of the largest state universities in the country.
