The International American University College of Medicine (IAUCOM) is seeking to recruit a full-time tenure-track faculty member (Assistant, Associate or full Professor) to teach Medical Anatomy to first year allopathic medical students. Preference will be given to applicants with experience teaching clinically oriented, interdisciplinary Gross Anatomy and Embryology, across multiple pedagogies (including lectures, labs and small groups) that are all driven by self-directed learning. The 14-week course is conducted in three discrete classes of 40-45 students per year, as part of their first semester of the Basic Sciences program.
The successful candidate must be able, or be prepared to rapidly develop complementary skills, to: 1) teach a full range of Gross Anatomy and Embryology topics; 2) conduct student assessment and evaluation of core course competencies; 3) contribute to annual curriculum review and refinement; 4) practice applied learning in the anatomy/embryology laboratory using interactive pedagogies such as Socratic questioning; and 5) facilitate small group case-based learning sessions.
Applicants who have experience using interactive learning strategies, with excellent oral and written communication skills, and who have taught in a curriculum aligned with USMLE standards, would offer a distinct advantage.
The successful applicant shall have a terminal degree (PhD in Anatomy or a related field, MD, DO, MBBS, PsyD, EdD, etc). A commitment to pursue adaptive expertise in teaching is required, as this is a primary responsibility of the position.
