Candidates must have a degree in Veterinary Medicine. An advanced degree (PhD) is desirable but not required. Board certification in the American College of Veterinary Dermatology or the European College of Veterinary Dermatology is preferred, but candidates who have completed an approved residency will be considered.
Clinical teaching and service in the Cornell University Hospital for Animals (CUHA), lecture and laboratory instruction of veterinary students and house officers, and the establishment of an independent research program are expected. Distribution of effort in the Section and Department will be determined in accordance with the service needs, academic priorities, and the candidate's expertise and academic goals in dermatology.
Clinical duties include the examination of all animals with skin disease presented to the CUHA. The dermatology clinicians have primary case responsibility for dogs and cats examined in the dermatology clinic. The dermatology service also collaborates extensively on cases under the management of other services and can include dogs, cats, exotic and zoo species, horses, and the spectrum of farm animals.
Beyond clinical duties, the on-duty faculty member is responsible for phone or internet consultations with regional veterinarians; leads case and didactic rounds with the students, interns and residents assigned to the service; and has an active role in the weekly dermatohistopathology rounds of the pathology service. The candidate should have strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work cooperatively with all members of the college community.
