The Seton Highland Lakes ED offers physicians a night shift bonus and high RVU potential. A cohesive, young group of ED residency-trained physicians are supported by an excellent nursing and ancillary staff. The hospital is also a teaching site for the UT Austin Emergency Medicine Residency program.
