Texas A&M College of Medicine Department of Medical Education in conjunction with the ENMED program invites applications for a full-time, non-tenure track faculty position at the instructional assistant or instructional associate level. 

This position will consider applicants with expertise and experience in pre-clinical medical school instruction.  Candidates must possess either a medical degree or a doctorate in a closely related discipline.  An engineering background is a plus.  Specific expertise is required in one or more core pre-clerkship curricular topics, including: gross anatomy, integrative physiology, renal/genitourinary or integument/musculoskeletal. 

Candidates should demonstrate a commitment to education that is synergistically aligned with the goals of ENMED.  ENMED’s pre-clerkship curriculum utilizes evidence-based and student-centered strategies such as active learning, flipped-classroom, case-based and team-based learning.

Candidates will participate in developing and delivering the pre-clerkship curriculum and working with other members of the ENMED faculty to integrate medical training with instruction in engineering principles.  Experience in development and/or oversight of a pre-clinical medical school curriculum, with preference for a flipped-classroom, active-learning approach, such as case and/or team-based learning, is preferred.  In addition to instructional responsibilities, candidates will be expected to contribute to curricular development and development of innovative instructional methods, and fostering collaboration among the three ENMED partners (COM, COE and HMH).

All positions are security sensitive.  Applicants are subject to a criminal history investigation, and employment is contingent on verification of credentials and/or other information required information, including the completion of the criminal history check.

ENMED is a collaborative venture among Texas A&M College of Medicine (COM), Texas A&M College of Engineering (COE) and Houston Methodist Hospital (HMH).  ENMED graduates receive a MD degree and a Master of Engineering in four years.  This first-in-the-nation program blends experiential learning in engineering innovation with medical school training to create a new kind of physician, a “physicianeer” with the goal of transforming health care.  ENMED is located in Houston’s Texas Medical Center (TMC).
