Position Summary

The Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine, Michigan State University, invites applications for a faculty appointment in Emergency and Critical Care Medicine (ECCM). The position is available at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank, in our Health Programs appointment system. The successful candidate will join our dynamic team to become the 4th Emergency and Critical Care Medicine faculty member and an integral member of the service, which includes 3 Diplomates of ACVECC (and two more large animal Diplomates of ACVECC), 6 residents, and 31 service-dedicated (ICU) licensed veterinary technicians. The Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences comprises over 30 faculty, and has an onsite, state-of-the art Veterinary Medical Center (VMC). The VMC provides outstanding patient care and is staffed with highly qualified veterinary technicians, social workers and other care providers to support the specialty services. In addition to emergency and critical care medicine, the VMC is well represented in specialty areas including highly active soft tissue and orthopedic surgery services, internal medicine, medical oncology, radiation oncology, neurology, cardiology, anesthesiology, sports medicine and rehabilitation, dentistry, primary care, interventional radiology, behavior medicine, ophthalmology and dermatology. Support from the specialty services for the ICU is robust and includes but is not limited to daily between 7:00AM and 10:00PM full clinical laboratory coverage, a dedicated emergency surgery resident and advanced cross-sectional imaging modalities available after hours. The ER/ICU was remodeled to create a large, open-concept ICU with a dedicated quiet (feline) room, isolation ward, and four treatment stations, all with a centralized work station allowing the team to monitor patients closely and communicate effectively. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCLQOho0wtE for a brief view of the facility at the time of its dedication. The ICU currently utilizes advanced treatment capabilities including Draeger Evita Infinity and Respironics Esprit long term ventilators and the Prismaflex CRRT system. In addition, the hospital boasts an interventional radiology suite, a wound management suite, 10 operating rooms, Storz HD video laparoscopy/thoracoscopy towers, Zeiss operating microscope, GE Revolution 64-slice helical CT, OEC mobile C-arm, Siemens 1.5 Tesla MRI, Scintron nuclear medicine suite, Varian linear accelerator, Olympus and Storz videoendoscopy. The ECCM service has a highly successful resident training program with a busy caseload (>11,000 cases annually) and experienced, supportive faculty. Our service philosophy focuses on active case management by all members of our team. The service sees 30-70 new cases daily and manages an average of 10-15 as inpatients. We seek a fourth faculty member with a commitment to active case management, student and house officer instruction, student teaching and scholarly activity. The CVM Professional Curriculum has been recently restructured to emphasize learner-centered, active learning experiences in both the pre-clinical and clinical phases of training.

Ample opportunity exists for interested individuals to become involved in scholarly activity related to veterinary medical education and curriculum development.

The successful candidates responsibilities will include management of ECCM cases, clinical instruction of house officers and students, and a commitment to scholarly contributions in the candidates areas of interest and expertise. Participation in the pre-clinical teaching curriculum and committee assignments is also expected. Assignments of clinical service, teaching and scholarly activity are negotiable with the Department Chairperson. Evaluations and promotions are based on the faculty members performance within the agreed assignments.
