Geriatric Medicine
The College of Medicine is guided by a legislative mandate to "educate and develop exemplary physicians who practice patient-centered health care, discover and advance knowledge, and are responsive to community needs, especially through service to elder, rural, minority, and underserved populations". The College utilizes a "distributed" model whereby students spend their first 2 years in Tallahassee and the last 2 years in one of six regional campuses around the state. The Department of Geriatrics, one of only 5 in the College of Medicine, is unique in being among the few Geriatrics departments nationally.


The Florida State University College of Medicine is seeking applicants for a Full Time Faculty position at the Assistant and/or Associate Rank commensurate with experience. This position will be a clinician educator and will join 11 full time and 60 part time community-based faculty in the Department of Geriatrics.

Faculty will also teach physician assistant students and medical residents providing care in affiliated hospital programs. Participation in relevant research initiatives is encouraged, but not required. Specific contributions to clinical care, education and research will be based on the candidate's interests and experience.
