The University of Arizona College of Veterinary Medicine (UA-CVM), located in Oro Valley, Arizona, invites applications for a career track, non-tenure eligible faculty position with a primary focus on teaching clinical and/or anatomical pathology. We are seeking a veterinary pathologist 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 UA-CVM curriculum is built on an inclusive, evidence-based pedagogy and organized by organ-system blocks. Faculty in this position will collaborate with the organ-system course leaders to build clinically relevant clinical pathology, general and systemic pathology course content geared toward “day-one-ready” veterinarians trained in lifelong learning and prepared to excel in diverse career trajectories. Instructional involvement may include leading pathology focused sessions of organ-systems, clinical skills, and professional skills course sessions as well as selectives in the 4th semester of the curriculum. Our faculty have the rare 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.
Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, and vision insurance plans; life insurance and disability programs; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; state and optional retirement plans; access to UA recreation and cultural activities; and more!
