WAUSM provides an exciting opportunity for individuals that wish to join an energetic team of medical educators that are committed to building a fresh, new, dynamic, and innovative medical education program. Our students will study medicine in a highly integrated, systems-based, hybrid curriculum that incorporates active learning strategies into large and small group settings. With a powerful focus on active, case-based learning; robust simulation; and early exposure to clinical patients, WAUSM students can expect an integrated learning experience with individualized support that will prepare them to excel in the Clerkship portion of their studies, and beyond. We seek outstanding, team-oriented teachers who will share our excitement in building this dynamic and innovative educational program. The pre-clerkship foundational sciences program will be built around a 5-semester (15 weeks per semester) model of instruction with basic science concepts and competencies related to patient centered care integrated and woven throughout. Phase I of campus construction is currently underway to include multi-functional academic learning spaces, student study, tutoring and leisure space, faculty offices and collaboration areas, simulation and clinical exam rooms and outdoor spaces.
WAUSM will operate on three semesters per year with a new class of students matriculating each semester. Therefore, teaching duties and administrative responsibilities continue throughout the year. A focus on teaching, student learning and support is paramount, and we look to individuals who can provide excellence in these areas. Positions are located in Freeport, Grand Bahama Island.
