The University of Arizona’s College of Veterinary Medicine (UA-CVM) invites applications for a career track, non-tenure eligible faculty position with a focus on the development and delivery of the large animal portion of the longitudinal Clinical Skills curriculum for first and second year veterinary students. This individual will work collaboratively with faculty to foster a culture of excellence in Clinical Skills training that is hands-on, practical, and innovative by design. The UA-CVM has adopted a distributed clinical training model and does not have a Teaching Hospital. Hence, the position is strictly teaching and does not entail a clinical component or any patient care duties.
The UA-CVM curriculum is built on an inclusive, evidence-based pedagogy that is organized into organ-system blocks. The Clinical Skills laboratories are fully integrated with these systems-based courses to co-teach and apply key principles to hands-on learning. Traditional didactic lectures are not part of our teaching program. The Year 1 Clinical Skills course entails hands-on labs with and without live animals designed to create engaging, interactive experiences for students to apply knowledge and clinical reasoning to real-world problems. Skills are attempted, observed, practiced, assessed, and refined. Reflective observation is incorporated into the learning process so that students can look back on and ultimately grow from past experiences. Year 2 involvement may include the development and delivery of Advanced Clinical Skills courses.
We value an inclusive environment that fosters adaptive, innovative learners who will be successful leaders in the field of veterinary medicine. The successful candidate will demonstrate a commitment to joining and contributing to an academic culture of inclusive and active learning. Abundant faculty development resources are available to assist faculty in developing skills in active learning strategies.
