1580 E Hanley Blvd, Oro Valley, AZ 85737-9525 USAPosition Highlights:
The University of Arizona College of Veterinary Medicine (UA-CVM), located in Oro Valley, Arizona, is seeking a veterinarian with clinical experience in veterinary oncology to assist with the design and facilitation of active learning classroom sessions and clinical skills labs for first and second-year pre-clinical veterinary students. The position is a part-time, non-benefits eligible faculty position (0.25 full-time equivalent) and will entail a commitment of approximately 10 hours per week.
The UA-CVM curriculum is built on an inclusive, evidence-based pedagogy and organized by organ-system blocks. Faculty in this position will collaborate with course leaders of the organ-system and other courses such as Clinical Skills and Clinical Logic to build and facilitate clinically relevant active learning exercises with the goal of graduating “day-one-ready” veterinarians trained in lifelong learning and prepared to excel in diverse career trajectories. Second-year course involvement may include leading the oncology portions of advanced medical and surgical management and contributions to oncology, medicine, and surgery electives. Our faculty have the opportunity to build content “from the ground up” within a team of content and pedagogy experts who are “reverse-designing” pre-clinical and clinical veterinary medical curricula. Team-Based Learning (TBL) and Peer Instruction (PI) methods will be used in classroom sessions—traditional didactic lectures are not part of the teaching program.
We value an inclusive environment that fosters adaptive, innovative learners who will be successful leaders in the field of veterinary medicine. The successful candidate will demonstrate a commitment to joining and contributing to an academic culture of inclusive and active learning. Abundant faculty development resources are available, both within the college and externally, to assist faculty in developing skills in active learning strategies.
This career-track appointment is not eligible for tenure.
