The selected candidate will provide instruction in basic science/foundational courses across multiple disciplines including Pathology, Histology, Pathophysiology, Physiology and Cell Biology, and serve as facilitator for small group discussion in case-based learning, problem-based learning, and other small group sessions. In addition, this position will collaborate with other clinical and basic science faculty for the development of clinical cases to emphasize basic science foundational concepts and will participate in the development and review of formative and summative assessment items. The position is a full-time academic position without clinically related duties.
