The University of Arizona College of Veterinary Medicine (UA-CVM), located in Oro Valley, Arizona, invites applications for a full-time faculty position with a primary focus on teaching and learning in a veterinary medical curriculum built on evidence-based pedagogy, to graduate “day-one-ready” veterinarians who have been specifically trained in lifelong learning and are prepared to excel in diverse career trajectories.
We are seeking a specialty-board certified veterinarian with expertise in small animal internal medicine to build and deliver curriculum, primarily in relevant organ system-based coursework. Opportunities also exist to teach coursework in other components of the DVM curriculum, including clinical/professional skills courses, case presentation courses, and one-health courses. The successful candidate for this position will have the rare opportunity to build this content “from the ground up” within a team of content and pedagogy experts who will be “reverse-designing” a complete pre-clinical and clinical veterinary medical curriculum. A commitment to joining and contributing to an academic culture of active learning is essential for the successful candidate. Abundant faculty development resources are available, both within the college and externally, to build faculty skills in active-learning and working with DVM students from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences. Opportunities to engage in scholarly activities related to veterinary medicine are possible, but not required, in this position.
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!
