The selected candidate will work closely with the Office of the Chair, Department Administration, the Division Administrators and faculty members. Discretion with highly confidential and sensitive material is fundamental to be successful in this position. In addition, the incumbent must have the ability to manage independently competing priorities from diverse elements of the academic and health care environments.

All UW School of Medicine and Public Health faculty and staff are responsible for upholding the highest standards for professional conduct and ethical behavior in pursuing the School's missions of patient care, education, research, and service. Professionalism includes: 1) demonstrating honesty, integrity, inclusivity, accountability, and fairness; 2) treating everyone, including patients and visitors, colleagues, staff, and learners, with kindness, compassion, and respect; and 3) making a commitment to altruism in all interactions. Faculty and staff are responsible for personally modeling professional conduct and inspiring and expecting professional behavior by others. The Department of Medicine expects all faculty and staff to abide by these principles of professionalism, and associated laws and university policies, in the performance of their responsibilities.

The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but, also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
