Ross University School of Medicine, located on the beautiful Caribbean island of Dominica in the West Indies, invites applications for a faculty post, at any rank, as a Radiologist. Our mission is to prepare highly dedicated students to become effective, successful physicians in the United States. Basic science coursework is taught in Dominica and students then complete their clinical studies in the United States. After passing all prerequisite examinations, Ross graduates are licensed to practice medicine in all 50 states of the U.S. Ross University School of Medicine is a division of Adtalem Global Education (NYSE:ATGE).

Education is the primary focus of the faculty. The academic year is divided into three semesters with a new class of students admitted each semester. Lectures and other educational responsibilities continue throughout the year. Effective teachers are sought, particularly individuals who are interested in improving medical education and who work well on a team. Research opportunities exist, primarily in the area of medical education. Faculty members need to remain current on developments and best practices in clinical medicine; also, need to research emerging industry trends, new technologies, concepts and techniques and work with the appropriate personnel to integrate these items into the department goals.

The Department of Anatomy in partnership with the Department of Clinical Medicine seek a radiologist to teach in the Foundations of Medicine curriculum in semesters 1-4 as well as develop teaching modules for the clinical clerkship program in semesters 5-10. Lecture and small group formats are used for curriculum delivery and faculty are expected to be proficient in teaching in both settings. The Department of Anatomy has a modern, highly advanced technological medical imaging space that can be used for small group teaching and a variety of educational uses and projects. Interviewing and physical examination skills labs, case-based small group learning, a robust Standardized Patient program, and high fidelity medical simulation using Laerdal SimMan3G technology, are all employed for the Clinical Skills curriculum delivery within the Department of Clinical Medicine. In addition, RUSM pre-clinical students have a number of required activities with live patients in community clinics and the Princess Margaret Hospital in Roseau. Curriculum activities and content are supported by behavioral learning objectives and proficiency expectations are clearly defined.
