The Dell Medical School Department of Psychiatry and Behavior Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin, in conjunction with the Seton Healthcare Family, is seeking a board certified/board eligible Psychiatrist to join our clinical faculty and serve on our outpatient clinical team in Austin, Texas.  

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.

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. The clinician will work closely with the Psychiatry Clinical Institutes to provide consultation, initial evaluations and follow-up treatment for individuals struggling with mental health in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary and team oriented approach. Depending on leadership skills, the candidate may progress to a leadership position. Primary responsibilities will include providing world-class medicine and clinical expertise to evaluate and treat a broad spectrum of mental health challenges in an outpatient setting.

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 collaboration with Seton Healthcare Family, with the physician providing clinical care in an outpatient or elsewhere as needed.

The successful candidate’s appointment within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavior Sciences 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.
