Duties include:

Providing diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventative mental health care services in accordance with established protocols and in consultation with your supervising psychiatrist.

Document clinical care using web-based electronic health record

Communicate with patients via email and telephone concerning health related questions

Willingness to become a community leader and speaker in the field of mental health, mental health parity, and restoring the bridge between mental and physical health.

Qualifications:  Great sense of humor and positive energy along with a current, unrestricted State of Texas Physician Assistant license, DEA, and DPS license.  The PA will be responsible for meeting CME requirements to maintain certification and licensure. New graduates are welcome as they will be integral to the success of implementing a new mental health treatment paradigm.  Mental health experience is highly valued but not necessary.
