FACULTY VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT
The CUNY School of Medicine (CSOM) at The City College of New York (CCNY) located in the heart of Harlem, is the only medical school in the City University of New York system. CSOM values diversity and inclusion and believes they are essential to achieving excellence. There is a continuing shortage of primary care physicians in this country, creating an urgent need for more family practitioners, general internists, pediatricians and obstetrician/gynecologists in many communities. The shortage of African-American, Latinx, and others underrepresented medical professionals in inner city areas is particularly acute. Over forty years ago, City College decided to make a difference by developing the most unique physician training program in the nation, The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, which in the fall of 2017 became – The CUNY School of Medicine. Since its founding, the school has been committed to recruiting underrepresented populations into medicine, increasing medical services in under served areas, and increasing the availability of primary care physicians. We seek candidates whose research, teaching and/or service has prepared them to contribute to this overall mission.

POM courses begin in the second year of the undergraduate program and continue until graduation. The Assistant Course Director (Clinical Professor) would provide students with practical skills which they can use to engage patients and be useful in a service learning context at clinical sites. The Assistant Course Director will also assist with course topics such as developing professional identity, teaching medical interviewing, physical diagnosis skills, medical presentation skills, clinical reasoning skills, cultural competence skills and work to prepare students to enter their clerkship year.
