The DVM program at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) comprises seven semesters of integrated training on the island of St. Kitts in the Caribbean, and an additional year of clinical training at one of 23 affiliated veterinary medical schools in the United States. The goal of the program is to provide students with a hands-on, student-centered, outcome based preparatory training experience that adequately meets the clinical year expectations and addresses Day-One competencies.
To support the program, RUSVM is committed to recruiting candidates that are dedicated to teaching and the delivery of an innovative and effective curriculum, while leading the studies in development and validation of models/simulation. To achieve this, RUSVM operates a dedicated Clinical Skills Laboratory where many of the basic surgical and procedural skills are taught, and support for model development is provided. The selected candidate would be the Director of the Skills laboratory, providing direction and leading the development and validation of new models while enhancing simulation across the RUSVM curriculum.
The successful candidate will be responsible for promoting and participating in faculty development, research and scholarly work in the field of clinical skills and simulation, as well as in teaching and assessment relevant to clinical skills.
