"The Seton Highland Lakes ED offers a great mix of trauma and high medical acuity patients. Be prepared for a fast-paced environment. You can choose to live in downtown Austin, a suburb of Austin, or in the beautiful Hill Country minutes from the hospital. Come work and play where many people vacation! Buy a lake house and a boat and be on the water minutes after your ED shift."

Robert Harding, Jr., DO
