The Department of Neurology at The University of Texas Dell Medical School (DMS), in conjunction with the Dell Children's Neuroscience Center, is recruiting a physician for our pediatric physical medicine & rehabilitation (PM&R) program.

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. We are committed to reshaping 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. The Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation service will be a major component of the Dell Children's Neuroscience Center, one of the hospital's focus areas. Research support is available via DMS, and research space is available at the University's adjacent Pediatric Research Institute or at DMS. Funding for two additional PM&R faculty members is available. Residency programs in adult PM&R, adult neurology, and child neurology residency programs already exist, and funding for a pediatric PM&R fellowship is available.

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 “Best US Places to Live” survey. Austin is a vibrant, socially conscious university city that is known for its live music scene, cultural diversity, and international festivals such as South by Southwest (SXSW). Nearby lakes and rivers as well as the beautiful adjacent Texas Hill Country provide ample opportunities for outdoor activities.
