Austin, Texas

Pediatric Ophthalmologists

 
Texas Children's Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine are seeking additional full time, board eligible and/or board certified, fellowship trained pediatric ophthalmologists to join their team at our Austin location. This is an exciting opportunity that will allow candidates not only to provide care to the rapidly growing population of Central Texas, but also to be a part of the opening of our new hospital and to build a practice in the growing city of Austin, TX. The ideal candidate should have a strong foundation in outpatient, inpatient, ER and NICU care.
 
With just about 800,000 people, Austin is the fourth largest city in Texas and the fourteenth largest in the United States. Combined with its neighbors to the north and south, the city consistently appears on lists of the best cities to move to and best places to retire. Austin is considered a very livable city, based on amenities, cost of living, housing, crime rate, and other factors.
 
Furthermore, Austin's future is very bright: in 2010 Kiplinger ranked it the best city for the next decade and The Street, a leading financial news website, named Austin one of the U.S. cities poised for greatness.
 
The word is apparently getting around: Austin's population grew 48 percent in the 1990s, and has been approximately doubling every decade since 2000.
 
Austin is located in central Texas, at the boundary between the Texas Hill Country and the prairies of East Texas. Austin has abundant greenery and forestation with lakes and streams, and is surrounded by state parks.
 
Despite the rapid development accompanying its population growth, Austin has an influential environmentalist movement and is committed to preserving its natural beauty.

Texas Children's Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine are seeking additional full time, board eligible and/or board certified, fellowship trained pediatric ophthalmologists to join their team at our Austin location. This is an exciting opportunity that will allow candidates not only to provide care to the rapidly growing population of Central Texas, but also to be a part of the opening of our new hospital and to build a practice in the growing city of Austin, TX. The ideal candidate should have a strong foundation in outpatient, inpatient, ER and NICU care.
 
With just about 800,000 people, Austin is the fourth largest city in Texas and the fourteenth largest in the United States. Combined with its neighbors to the north and south, the city consistently appears on lists of the best cities to move to and best places to retire. Austin is considered a very livable city, based on amenities, cost of living, housing, crime rate, and other factors.
 
Furthermore, Austin's future is very bright: in 2010 Kiplinger ranked it the best city for the next decade and The Street, a leading financial news website, named Austin one of the U.S. cities poised for greatness.
 
The word is apparently getting around: Austin's population grew 48 percent in the 1990s, and has been approximately doubling every decade since 2000.
 
Austin is located in central Texas, at the boundary between the Texas Hill Country and the prairies of East Texas. Austin has abundant greenery and forestation with lakes and streams, and is surrounded by state parks.
 
Despite the rapid development accompanying its population growth, Austin has an influential environmentalist movement and is committed to preserving its natural beauty.
