The University of Arizona College of Veterinary Medicine (UA-CVM), located in Oro Valley, Arizona, invites applications for a career-track faculty position with a primary focus on teaching veterinary surgery. We are seeking a veterinarian with clinical experience in small animal and/or equine/large animal surgery to assist with the design and facilitation of active learning classroom sessions and clinical skills labs for first and second-year pre-clinical veterinary students. The UA-CVM curriculum is built on an inclusive, evidence-based pedagogy and organized by organ-system blocks. Faculty in this position will collaborate with the organ-system course leaders to build clinically relevant surgical course content geared toward “day-one-ready” veterinarians trained in lifelong learning and prepared to excel in diverse career trajectories. Second-year course involvement may include leading small animal and/or equine/large animal surgery portions of advanced medical and surgical courses, developing and participating in clinical skills training and simulation-based education laboratories, and participating in species-focused elective courses having a surgical component. Our faculty have the opportunity to build content “from the ground up” within a team of content and pedagogy experts who are “reverse-designing” pre-clinical and clinical veterinary medical curricula. Team-Based Learning and Peer Instruction methods will be used in classroom sessions—traditional didactic lectures are not part of the teaching program.
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, both within the college and externally, to assist faculty in developing skills in active learning strategies.
