Serves the Sam Houston State University College of Osteopathic Medicine (SHSU-COM) in the Department of Primary Care and Clinical Medicine. The University is seeking qualified candidates to join SHSU-COM as full-time Clinical Faculty. The position reports to the Chair of Primary Care and Clinical Medicine. The College of Osteopathic Medicine is currently in pre-accreditation status from the Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation. The University is focused on improving the physician workforce in primary care and other specialties identified as a physician shortage in the State of Texas and has developed an integrated curriculum merging basic science instruction with clinical learning and an osteopathic emphasis. The Clinical Faculty member will be expected to act as mentors, particularly for students wishing to practice in primary care fields or in rural/community-based medicine.
The clinical faculty members will assist the Chair of Primary Care and Clinical Medicine in development of clinical content for systems courses and clerkships, participate in scholarship and research in the department, provide quality patient care and foster collaboration and interdisciplinary learning.
