Job Description

Psychiatric Physician Assistant
On the Southwest Riviera...

The Community - San Antonio, TX
San Antonio may have an incredibly rich history, but it's also a destination rife with exciting new developments and attractions. One major new draw is the redevelopment of the legendary Pearl Brewery into a hip and artsy Urban Village along a newly completed extension of the enchanting River Walk - this bustling, eco-friendly complex includes shops, restaurants, entertainment and residences. Farther north along the river, the very first public golf venue in Texas, Brackenridge Golf Course, completed a stunning $4.6 million refurbishment in 2009, and in arts news, the prestigious McNay Art Museum nearly doubled in size with the opening of a dramatic new wing done in modernist style. With swank, see-and-be-seen restaurants, shops, and nightspots opening around the city, San Antonio has plenty to offer both new and repeat visitors.
