JOB OVERVIEW

The School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley, seeks to recruit a faculty member as the Head of the Foundational Medical Sciences curriculum in our Joint Medical Program, with a potential start date of July 1, 2018. Applications are invited for an Associate Health Science Clinical Professor position, which includes 50 percent guaranteed long-term salary support.

UC BERKELEY JOINT MEDICAL PROGRAM
The UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program is a joint degree program in which students earn a UC Berkeley MS in Health and Medical Sciences over 2.5 years while concurrently pursuing their pre-clinical medical curriculum towards their UCSF MD. After their 2.5 “pre-clerkship” years at UC Berkeley where they earn their MS, students transfer to UCSF for the final 2.5 “clerkship” (hospital and clinic-based) years of their medical education and where they earn their MD. When enrolled at Berkeley, students are based at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health. As the only medical school in the United States embedded within a school of public health, the JMP trains physicians to not only master the biomedical model for health and disease, but also to understand the contemporary psychological, social, cultural, political and bioethical contexts of health and disease. The JMP is a novel, model interdisciplinary program of medical education, combining rigorous scholarship with professional training, using a small group, problem-based curriculum for learning foundational medical science. The students spend their 2.5 JMP pre-clerkship years at UC Berkeley as both full-time graduate students and medical students pursuing a curriculum with three arms. The medical curriculum has two arms: 1) an integrated ProblemBased Learning (PBL) foundational medical sciences curriculum and 2) a clinical skills and community-based clinical curriculum, Patient Care & Clinical Systems (PCCS). The third arm is the MS curriculum, which allows students to earn a thesis-based Master of Science in Health and Medical Sciences.

Required Qualifications
At the time of application, candidates must have a medical degree from an accredited institution, be board-eligible in an American College of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-recognized medical specialty, have a documented record of curriculum development, and experience teaching medical students foundational medical science material. A PhD in a basic science discipline and experience in medical educational research are preferred but not required. Evidence of excellence in clinically relevant teaching, scholarly or creative activity, and University or public service will be essential for advancement in this series (Health Science Clinical Professor). Candidates should submit a cover letter, up-to-date curriculum vitae, statement of curriculum development and/or medical education research, statement of teaching (including experience and teaching philosophy), a statement of contributions to diversity (brief statement addressing past and/or potential contributions to diversity through research, teaching, and/or service) and three publications via UC Berkeley’s online application. In addition, please provide contact information for three referees. We will contact your referees only if you are a finalist for the position, and we will seek your permission before doing so.
