Opportunity at a Glance

To make a difference, you have to be different. That’s what we strive to be.

A career with Ross Vet is more than just a job; it is an extraordinary opportunity to join an innovative, collaborative community of passionate professionals making a difference every day by advancing human and animal health through the power of education.

We make a difference by providing our students with an unparalleled learning experience as they prepare for lifelong career success as today’s veterinarians and tomorrow’s leaders. Ross Vet colleagues thrive in a culture that encourages personal growth and professional development, bringing meaning and purpose to everything we do.

 

The Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) program consists of seven semesters of preclinical studies on the island of St. Kitts in the Caribbean and one year of clinical training at affiliated AVMA-accredited veterinary teaching hospitals in the United States and abroad. The primary focus of RUSVM is the education of students whose goal is to practice veterinary medicine mainly in North America and beyond. Scientific discovery is another important focal point for the University.

Responsibilities

The Department of Clinical Sciences invites applications to join our Diagnostic Imaging teaching team. The focus of the position is on teaching our students the basics of Diagnostic Imaging on a didactic level and during hands on laboratory sessions. The main diagnostic imaging course is currently a 4 credit course with laboratory sessions. The candidate will also participate in other didactic courses as appropriate for the expertise of the applicant and in pre-clinical laboratory experiences (essential veterinary skills laboratories). An emphasis on innovative teaching methods and delivery is encouraged.


The faculty member will also be involved in clinical cases throughout the University by providing service and via rounds with other team members. The caseload presented to our on-campus Community Practice primarily consists of dogs and cats with a small representation of exotic species such as birds, monkeys and tortoises. In addition, the University provides healthcare to approximately 200 large animals that reside on campus. RUSVM is equipped with digital radiography and PACS systems. Workstations are positioned throughout the Community Practice for use by students, staff, and clinicians, in rounds or special procedures rooms. Ultrasound services are provided through the Community Practice. There is a Diagnostic Imaging student laboratory with sixty viewing workstations and at least two ultrasound machines.


The candidate is encouraged to have a research focus that can be supported by intra and extramural grant funding. Engagement in service activities, including faculty meetings, assigned committees and designated office hours is expected. Additional duties and responsibilities may be assigned by the Divisional Head and Department Head, as needed.


The position will be based on the island of St. Kitts and opportunity is available for candidates to continue or retain outside commitments that are able to be fulfilled remotely, such as teleradiology.

Qualifications

A veterinary degree with either board certification by the ACVR, eligibility for board certification, Diplomate status in the ECVDI, or an equivalent specialty certification is required. Extensive clinical experience in U.S., Canada, or an equivalent health care system and a desire to teach and mentor veterinary students are required. A successful applicant will be expected to possess excellent interpersonal communication skills and a demonstrated ability to work with others in a collegial team atmosphere.

While this is intended to be an accurate reflection of the current job, management reserves the right to revise the job or to require that other or different tasks be performed when circumstances change (e.g., emergencies, changes in personnel, workload, rush jobs or technological developments).
