Title: Assistant Professor Without Tenure - Department of Biomedical Informatics and Medical Education
The Department of Biomedical Informatics and Medical Education (BIME) at the University of Washington (UW) is looking for one full-time faculty at the Assistant Professor Without Tenure (Job Code 10113) level to join our current faculty in the Division of Medical Education and Evaluation with an anticipated start date of 07/01/2020. This is a full-time, indefinite term position with a 12-month appointment. All University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research, and service. For this position the expectation is 20% research and scholarship and 80% teaching/service.
The successful applicant will work closely with the Vice, Associate and Assistant Deans of the UW School of Medicine (UWSoM) and the chairs of the 32 departments within UWSoM to develop, implement and evaluate a comprehensive educator development program that promotes teaching excellence, community building, lifelong learning, and professionalism as well as a program to disseminate teaching skills to faculty across the UWSoM’s broad array of learning environments. The faculty role will include two synergistic leadership positions: the directorship of the Center for Leadership and Innovation in Medical Education (CLIME) and the directorship of the Teaching Scholars Program. CLIME was established in 2012 to foster innovation, scholarship and collaboration for the advancement of health professions education, bringing together educators from all parts of UWSoM. Teaching Scholars is a longitudinal certificate program for health professions educators focused on learning theory, teaching skills, curriculum development and translation of educational efforts into scholarship. It is designed to prepare physician and other health professionals for leadership roles as educators, mentors, and education scholars. Both programs are deeply committed to training and nurturing clinician-educators and basic scientists.
The Division of Medical Education and Evaluation and the UW School of Medicine medical education programs have a dynamic and synergistic collaboration that strives to continually improve every facet of the undergraduate, graduate and continuing medical education experience for students, trainees and faculty. The WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho) program of the UWSoM extends the physical presence of the School of Medicine across 5 states and nearly 28% of the nation’s geographic area. The network of 6 regional preclinical teaching campuses and hundreds of clinical training sites across the 5 states provides a rich environment for implementing pilot experiments to improve the medical education experience.
