Job Description

Clinical Medical Sciences
Full Time Faculty Position in Sint Maarten
Please include cover letter when applying

AUC Faculty members in St. Maarten are organized into two departments: Clinical Medical Sciences (CMS) and Basic Medical Sciences (BMS). CMS faculty report to the Chair, Clinical Medical Sciences.
 
The Medical Sciences Campus’ academic year is divided into three semesters with a new class of students admitted each semester. The Medical Sciences curriculum is transitioning to an organ-system model, with teams of faculty teaching integrated modules.  Small group activities, lectures, and other educational responsibilities continue throughout the year. Research opportunities exist, primarily in medical education. The Sint Maarten campus is well-equipped and technologically advanced, including a fully equipped anatomy lab with both cadaveric and Sectra table dissection, an expansive simulation center, 5 large auditorium-sized classrooms, an applied research laboratory, and other learning tools geared toward integrating medical school classroom study with practical applications of medicine.  AUC has a formal partnership with the Sint Maarten Ministry of Health and works collaboratively with many community partners on projects that benefit island Sint Maarten and offer community engagement opportunities for students.
