Location: Austin, Texas

Description
The Department of Neurology at The University of Texas Dell Medical School (DMS), in conjunction with the Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas, is recruiting a Medical Director of our Pediatric Epilepsy Program. We seek an outstanding clinical and academic leader who will set the vision for the epilepsy program and inspire and mentor the program's other team members. The Director should be adept at working with the interdisciplinary teams that are typically needed for optimal epilepsy care.

The University of Texas Dell Medical School, the first new medical school to be built at a tier one US research university in nearly 50 years, welcomed its first class in 2016. Adult and child neurology residency programs are already in place. We are 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. DMS is also home to the Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences, established by a $50 million gift from the Mulva Family Foundation; it is part of the collaborative scientific community of departments, centers, and institutes on the adjacent University of Texas campus.

With 248 beds, Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas is the only freestanding pediatric hospital in the region. It features a level 4 epilepsy center with VEEG/EMU, SPECT, PET, fMRI, and MEG. One pediatric epilepsy specialist is currently on the faculty, and two other positions are already approved in addition to the director's position. Pediatric neuroscience has been designated as one of the hospital's focus areas. Research support is available for appropriate individuals via DMS, and research space is available at the hospital's research institute or at DMS.

Austin is the 11th most populous city in the US, and for the last two years it has ranked # 1 in the US News & World Report's \u201cBest US Places to Live\u201d survey.
