The University of Central Florida (UCF) College of Medicine (COM) is seeking applicants for a tenure track or non-tenure track (multi-year) appointment in the Department of Medical Education. The successful applicant will be expected to join an existing multi-disciplinary team of faculty and staff to teach gross anatomy, microanatomy, medical imaging, and embryology. The successful applicant will collaborate with both Basic Science and Clinical faculty to integrate and reinforce anatomical concepts throughout the curriculum. Development of independent scholarship as well as collaboration with other faculty members on research as principal or coinvestigator will be encouraged. The chosen applicant will also be expected to provide service to the educational programs at the college and university.

The College of Medicine aspires to become an extraordinary research-based institution training physicians of the future who will become exemplary physicians, leaders in medicine, scholars in science, innovators in medical technology and compassionate providers of health care.

COM is an LCME-accredited medical college with an annual matriculation of 120 medical students. The college is located at the Lake Nona campus in a new medical education building with modern anatomy, histology and simulation laboratories as well as a state-of-the-art library. It is part of a broader biomedical cluster known as “Medical City” at Lake Nona which continues to develop just east of the Orlando International Airport. Dedicated to innovation in health and wellness, Medical City now hosts the UCF Health Sciences Campus, the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, Nemours Children's Hospital, the VA Medical Center Orlando, as well as the University of Florida's Orlando Research and Pharmacy campus.

The development of a new Academic Health Sciences Center at Lake Nona will bring together related academic, clinical and research programs and services, and places COM in an excellent position to greatly expand inter-professional education and research, and improve care to clinical and eventually hospital patients. UCFCOM educates and inspires individuals to be exemplary physicians and scientists, leaders in medicine, scholars in discovery, and adopters of innovative technology to improve the health and well-being of all.
