DescriptionJob Summary The MGH Institute of Health Professions,an independent graduate school in Boston, MA, invites applications for a termlecturer position to teach our fully online course: Introduction to Chemistryfor the Health Professions. This position is contracted on asemester-basis.  Semesterreappointments will depend on budget and performance.

 Allapplications must include: (1) a cover letter summarizing teaching interests,experience and philosophy; (2) a complete curriculum vitae; and (3) contactinformation for three references (include title, affiliation, mailing address,e-mail address, and telephone number). Review of applications will beginimmediately and continue until position is filled.

 Course Descriptions:
Online Intro to Chemistry for Health Professions
Thiscourse introduces the basic concepts of chemistry and integrates a range oftopics and concepts with a focus on how these topics relate to health care.which are crucial to health science majors.  Selected areas of GeneralChemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Biochemistry will be addressed throughphysiology and pharmacology with emphasison how structure, properties, and reactions of matter relate to health and theenvironment. Throughout the course learners will discuss how chemistry isinvolved in everyday life and its application to clinical settings.

General Chemistry 2
GeneralChemistry for the Health Science (II) is a second part of the course ininorganic chemistry and also contains a chapter of organic and bio-chemistry.The course includes properties of solutions, intermolecular forces, chemicalkinetics and chemical equilibrium, acid-base properties, chemicalthermodynamics and electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, chemistry of non-metalsand transition metals, and chemistry of life and environment. The topicscovered will be crucial for your understanding and success in future sciencecourses at the Institute of Health Professions and in graduate study in yourchosen profession. As often as possible we will examine how these topics relateto other subjects such as physiology and pharmacology. The topics in this coursewill be explained and discussed in the context of clinical applications tovarious health professions, such as nursing, physical therapy, occupationaltherapy, pharmacy etc.

Thecourse has a required online laboratory component to it. The laboratory assignmentsguide students in building problem-solving skills and mastering the contentaddressed in the course.
