The DVM program at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) comprises seven semesters of integrated preclinical training on the island of St. Kitts in the Caribbean, and an additional year of clinical training at one of 32 affiliated, AVMA-accredited veterinary schools. 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 clinical competencies appropriate for practice-ready graduates.
To support the program, RUSVM is committed to recruiting candidates that are dedicated to teaching and the delivery of an innovative and effective curriculum. RUSVM operates a dedicated Clinical Skills Laboratory where many of the basic surgical and procedural skills are taught, and support for model development and validation is provided. The successful candidate will be the Lead Vet Tech/Nurse of the Skills Laboratory, providing direction for personnel and enhancing the RUSVM curriculum with teaching and model development aimed at refining clinical competencies of students.
The successful candidate will report to the Assistant Dean for Competency-Based Veterinary Education. In collaboration with the Assistant Dean, the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Director of Research and Innovation in Veterinary and Medical Education and Director of IT the candidate will develop, maintain, refine and validate strategies for clinical skills training, while also being directly responsible for clinical skills laboratory budget, operations, staffing, space and the purchase/development of technology and models.
