Open Faculty Positions

The TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine is developing a forward-looking evidence-based and pedagogically sound curriculum. This exciting new curriculum has multiple moving parts that include organ systems-based courses (Phase I), longitudinal courses, the Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (Phase II), and 4th year electives (Phase III). While each curricular unit targets specific, and sometimes unique learning objectives and experiences, we have constructed a number of ways to provide seamless and cohesive content and bridging opportunities for students across the entire curriculum.

The School of Medicine, an applicant for LCME accreditation, is currently recruiting inaugural faculty to help in the development and implementation of the Phase I organ system courses, the Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (LIC), and the longitudinal curricular themes.
