Clinical Instructor - Small Animal Emergency & Critical Care
Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University invites applications for a Clinical Instructor position in Small Animal Emergency & Critical Care to cover a military deployment. The position is available immediately and will end between October 1 and December 31, 2020. The successful candidate will join 6 other faculty in the department, along with 11 residents, and ECC dedicated technicians, including 5 VTS/ECC. We are seeking a candidate who is committed to both excellent patient care and to teaching our students, technicians, and residents. Anticipated percentage allocations for this position are 75% clinical service and 25% academic time. Our schedule consists of either ICU or ER coverage and a weekday swing shift to allow the daytime team to leave at a reasonable hour. The weekend faculty covers both the ICU and the ER.
The emergency service of the Foster Hospital for Small Animals enjoys a robust caseload that ensures a variety of common and uncommon cases ranging in severity, making it ideal for both student and house officer teaching and faculty engagement. The emergency caseload consists primarily of dogs and cats and a smaller number of non-traditional species. About 40% of our cases are referred. The critical care service is a mature service that supports other specialty services in the care of their patients hospitalized in the ICU as well as critical care patients managed by our team. We ventilate approximately 30-40 cases per year.
The ideal candidate will have a supportive and positive outlook, be a strong multi-tasker, a great communicator, and will not be easily overwhelmed. We have a young faculty, work extremely well as a team, and work together to try to allow for a balance between work and personal life.
The selected candidate should enjoy resident mentoring and is expected to assist with boards review sessions, journal club, and other aspects of resident training, including supervision of resident research projects. Participation in clinical research is not required beyond resident mentoring but is welcomed and encouraged.
Requirements include a DVM degree or its equivalent and completion of an American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (ACVECC) and/or European College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (ECVECC) residency. Rank and salary will be commensurate with training and experience, and resident mentoring experience will be highly valued.
This position is available May 1, 2020. An initial review of applications will begin after February 14, 2020, but the search will continue until a suitable candidate is identified. Applicants should submit a letter of intent outlining their interests, experience, and qualifications, a current curriculum vitae, and the names of three professional references via Interfolio at http://apply.interfolio.com/73491. Inquiries can be directed to Dr. Armelle de Laforcade (firstname.lastname@example.org).
