The successful applicant will develop a teaching program that will provide students with a foundational knowledge of pharmacology while preparing students for the appropriate board examinations. Candidates should also be interested in integrating relevant and current evidence-based medicine into the basic science content and in collaborating with interdisciplinary teams (basic scientists and clinicians) to effectively deliver pharmacology content across a wide variety of topics in undergraduate medical education.

In addition, the incumbent to this position will assist in developing learning materials and will participate in an array of teaching modalities, including small-group and team-based learning, simulations, and assessment. The primary duty will be to develop and deliver content on Pharmacology and clinical aspects of drug therapy to DO students. Organization and administration of various aspects of DO student Pharmacology teaching may involve case discussions. In addition to teaching in the DO curriculum, there will be opportunities to teach in the Pharmacology and Toxicology PhD. program and the undergraduate Minor in Pharmacology and Toxicology.
