AY2020-21 E4C Faculty Opening
We are currently recruiting new faculty to our Educators-4-CARE Program for AY2020-21 to begin in January 2021. The Educators-4-CARE Program was established to support the enhanced development of our medical students as skilled and compassionate physicians. E4C faculty members serve as a teacher and mentor for 5-6 students from each year of medical school under a learning communities model. Each E4C faculty member will focus on their students’ acquisition and refinement of patient communication skills, clinical skills, and professionalism. Through building personal relationships that extend beyond the boundaries of the classroom and bedside settings, it is anticipated that E4C faculty will serve as mentors and role-models for their students, throughout their time at medical school. Educators also will participate in a variety of student milestone events as well as transitional and community events at the school.
Essential job functions:
- Each E4C faculty member are required to teach in the Practice of Medicine (POM) course two-half days per week, once for their first years and once for their second years. POM is scheduled from 1:30-5:20 pm on these afternoons with occasional, required faculty development sessions over the lunch hour.
- E4C faculty members also will dedicate one Friday morning every other month to participate in Doctoring with CARE sessions with their clinical students.
- E4C faculty will be expected to participate in the regularly scheduled E4C program meetings to continue to develop and refine the program. This includes curriculum development, program refinements, faculty development, and personal/professional growth. Selected faculty must be able to arrange their schedules to accommodate the E4C programmatic needs.
- Terms for this position will be one year and renewable up to three-years, based upon ongoing evaluation by students and program leaders.
- Educators will be expected to provide a clinical venue at which the students can be accommodated for bedside training.
- Educators will work collaboratively with the Advising Deans to provide the best overall support and guidance of their students including regular check-ins with their medical students outside of the classroom.
