Practice strengths and emphasis of the business:
 Be a constructive and collaborative member of the team of faculty and staff that lead the Clinical and Professional Skills courses. Assist or lead model development, Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs), surgical or procedural laboratories, and multi-species laboratories. Assist with curricular delivery and related activities. Most curricular delivery will focus on clinical and professional skills coursework including training of veterinary students in common clinical skills for new graduates, communication, interprofessional collaborations, ethics, leadership, and managing healthcare teams. You may also participate in delivery of the Clinical Presentations courses (case based and team based clinical cases), may serve as instructor of record for various courses, and may contribute to lectures in other courses. The curricular framework has been developed based on Competency Based Veterinary Education (CBVE; see, and is designed to be vertically and horizontally integrated. Clinical service, for the purpose of veterinary student clinical instruction, may be provided through specific private practice sites during clinical year student rotations. The TTU SVM does not have a teaching hospital and, thus, clinical service may include: Developing the rotation in anticipation of instructing students in their clinical year such as expanding the clinical caseload; Supporting a practice with diagnostics, therapeutics, and surgical support; and Advancing the education of veterinary practitioners, supervision, and instruction of clinical year students in core and/or elective clinical year rotations. Contribute to the TTU SVM’s instruction, scholarship, and service activities. The distribution of effort toward each activity will be individualized for each faculty member and outlined in the letter of appointment. It is expected that tenure-track faculty members will establish extramural support of their scholarship and this will include support for graduate students and opportunities for involvement of professional students. This expectation is proportional to percentage of effort assigned to scholarship in the letter of appointment.

For tenure-track appointments, participation in the School’s research enterprise and PhD program. Participation on various School committees. Additional comments: The curriculum is focused toward general veterinary practice in rural and regional communities.
