The Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine (ESFCOM) at Washington State University is a next generation medical college designed to train students to be physician leaders, who innovate, adapt and discover in an ever-changing healthcare landscape. The School seeks an Associate Dean for Curriculum to join the medical education team in preparing insightful and compassionate physicians that will lead and advance the delivery of care.
This is an opportunity to oversee the development, design, coordination and implementation of the medical school curriculum across all four years — a role that will critically influence and shape the quality and strength of our future physician workforce. The incumbent joins colleagues with a passion for education, working collaboratively in an environment that supports both innovation and leadership.
The incumbent will also collaborate with the clinical site directors and teaching faculty to create clinical education experiences where such experiences will add significant value to student learning and competency. The college will be using Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships during a major part of the 4-year curriculum giving the Associate Dean for Curriculum the ability to help guide clinical curricular content provided in an innovative manner. With clerkships occurring across the four campuses, the Associate Dean will help ensure comparability of the curriculum across all sites.
