The Department of Physician Assistant Studies at the George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences (SMHS) invites applications for a full-time (12-month), non-tenure-track faculty position for candidates with strong interest and expertise in program evaluation and student assessment. We welcome applications from candidates who are non-clinicians or clinicians who are currently board-certified and eligible for licensure. The department is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion, health equity, professional service, and interprofessional collaboration and is home to one of the premier PA programs in the country which features a strong public health focus. In addition to the two-year PA program, awarding a Master of Science in Health Sciences (MSHS), the department also offers a combined three-year MSHS/Master of Public Health program in partnership with the Milken Institute School of Public Health and a Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medicine Program.

In collaboration with the PA Program Director, PA faculty, and a department research associate, the incumbent will utilize their expertise in educational assessment and evaluation to document the longitudinal achievement of student competencies, and validate didactic and clinical assessment tools, and curriculum outcomes. The role also includes didactic or clinical teaching responsibilities in GW's nationally ranked PA program by lecture, seminars, and workshops, facilitating small group activities, and possibly advising students. Engaging in scholarly activities, providing service to the university and community, and advancing interprofessional and collaborative practices are also expectations.

The appointment will be made at a rank (assistant/associate/full professor) and salary commensurate with experience. Total compensation includes a generous benefits package. Numerous professional development opportunities are available to SMHS faculty including leadership and teaching programs through the Center for Faculty Excellence. Faculty are also eligible for tuition remission benefits for themselves and their family members.
