Description
The Department of Neurology at the Dell Medical School (DMS) at The University of Texas at Austin, along with its clinical partner Seton Healthcare Family, is recruiting BE/BC neurologists with expertise in the sub-specialties of vascular neurology, neurointensive care, and movement and memory disorders. The positions entail faculty appointments at DMS on the clinician-educator or physician-scientist tracks, with opportunities for teaching and supervision of the neurology residents and for establishing basic, applied, translational, or clinical research programs. Candidates must hold an MD, DO, or MD/PhD degree.

DMS, the first new medical school to be built at a tier one research university in nearly 50 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. It is now home to the Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences, established by a $50 million gift from the Mulva Family Foundation, and part of a collaborative scientific community of departments, centers, and institutes on the adjacent University of Texas campus.

The new 211-bed DMS teaching hospital, the Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas, opened in May, 2017 and includes a Comprehensive Stroke Center and dedicated 15-bed Neuro ICU. DMS and Seton also operate an additional Comprehensive Stroke Center and two Primary Stroke Centers in Austin and surrounding counties. For outpatient care, DMS is developing an innovative, team-focused, multidisciplinary Integrated Practice Unit (IPU) model for providing value-based care. In this model, a full range of clinicians and support staff from multiple disciplines are brought together for patient visits, providing care that is patient-centered, evidence-based, and systematically tracked for quality improvement

Austin, the capital of Texas and 11th most populous city in the United States, is universally recognized as a vibrant, entrepreneurial, and socially conscious city. Its live music scene, international festivals such as South by Southwest (SXSW), and outdoor amenities have made it among the fastest growing large cities in the nation.
