Description

The Department of Neurology at The University of Texas Dell Medical School (DMS), in conjunction with the UT Health Austin Pediatric Neurosciences at Dell Children's, is recruiting a third physician for our pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) team and Pediatric Rehabilitation Center. We seek an individual with excellent clinical skills, a passion for education, and the potential for scholarly contributions.

The UT Health Austin Pediatric Neurosciences at Dell Children's is a multidisciplinary program that encompasses child neurology, pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), pediatric neurosurgery, pediatric neuropsychology, and pediatric neuro-ophthalmology. With two board certified pediatric physiatrists, three experienced nurse practitioners, program coordinator, and a full complement of support staff, the Pediatric Rehabilitation Center offers comprehensive and multidisciplinary care for children with disabilities. The hospital supports an inpatient rehabilitation facility, and outpatient space is available in the adjoining 44,000 square foot neurosciences clinic within the Dell Children's Specialty Pavilion.

The pediatric neurosciences program currently hosts a child neurology residency along with fellowships in pediatric epilepsy, pediatric headache, and pediatric neuropsychology. General PM&R residents train in the pediatric program, and we plan to add fellowships in pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation and pediatric neuromuscular disease.

Dell Medical School is located on the main campus of The University of Texas at Austin, one of the country's leading universities. The medical school pursues innovation in healthcare delivery, excellence in healthcare research, and excellent professional education. Dell Children's Medical Center is a 300-bed freestanding facility that features a level 1 pediatric trauma center, a level 4 neonatal intensive care unit, a level 4 epilepsy center, and Magnet recognition for nursing excellence.

For the last several years, Austin has ranked near the top of the annual US News & World Report's “Best US Places to Live” survey. Austin is a vibrant, dynamic university city, known for its live music scene, contemporary social scene, and international festivals such as South by Southwest. Nearby lakes and rivers as well as the beautiful adjacent Texas Hill Country provide ample opportunities for outdoor activities.
