ANNOUNCEMENT OF SEARCH
The Department of Surgery at the Stanford University School of Medicine seeks a nationally renowned Surgical Educator and leader to serve as the Vice Chair (VC) for Education. This faculty position will be a full-time position at the Associate or Full Professor level in the University Tenure Line (UTL), Medical Center Line (MCL), Non Tenure Line (NTL) or Clinician Educator Line (CE). The predominant criterion for appointment in the University Tenure Line is a major commitment to research and teaching. The major criteria for appointment for faculty in the Medical Center Line shall be excellence in the overall mix of clinical care, teaching and scholarly activity that advances clinical medicine. The major criterion for appointment for faculty in the Non-Tenure Line (Teaching) is evidence of high-level performance as a teacher for whose special knowledge and pedagogical skills a programmatic need exists.
The Department of Surgery consists of five clinical divisions (General Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Pediatric Surgery and Abdominal Transplant Surgery), one teaching division (Clinical Anatomy), and a simulation center. The Division of Clinical Anatomy affords a unique opportunity to work with preclinical and clinical medical students, as well as graduate and post-graduate training programs. We have ACGME residencies in General Surgery, Vascular Surgery, and Plastic Surgery and fellowships across all the main disciplines within the divisions. A robust surgical simulation program is housed at our Goodman Simulation Center (set within the university hospital), maximizing efficient educational efforts for all surgical trainees.
An MD, PhD, or MD/PhD is required. The ideal candidate will hold or have held a major educational leadership role in surgery such as Clerkship Director, Program Director, Simulation Center Director or VC of Education or equivalent. A strong history of scholarly activity in education research or curriculum design is expected.
The VC for Education will have significant leadership responsibility to oversee all ACGME residencies and fellowships in the Department, and will serve to coordinate, strengthen, and further develop broad educational programs in conjunction with Program Directors. The VC will oversee the Surgery Clerkship and the Goodman Simulation Center and administer the consolidated education budget for the Department. Furthermore, the VC for Education will oversee all preclinical and clinical courses at Stanford University offered by Departmental faculty, and collaborate with colleagues across the University and School of Education to position Stanford Surgery as an innovative leader in surgical education.
