Printable version

The Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine announces an outstanding opportunity for a full-time tenure-track faculty position at any rank in Small Animal Internal Medicine (SAIM). Candidates must have a DVM or equivalent degree. Specialty board certification (ACVIM or ECVIM) is preferred, but candidates who have completed small animal internal medicine residency training with the intention of taking boards will also be considered. An advanced degree or equivalent research experience is desirable. The appointee will join the SAIM Service, which is comprised of four faculty, four residents, and three technicians.

The SAIM Service is located within the comprehensive Veterinary Medical Center with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, including endoscopy, cystoscopy, laser lithotripsy, laparoscopy, digital radiography, ultrasonography, computed tomography, a 3 Tesla MRI, nuclear medicine, an interventional radiology suite, 24-7 small animal emergency and critical care, and a recently renovated SAIM treatment room facility with adjacent student learning center.

Teaching responsibilities will include lectures, laboratories, and clinical teaching of small animal internal medicine and related topics to students, interns, residents, and graduate students. The candidate is expected to foster a broad and diverse caseload in internal medicine, including gastroenterology, respiratory, urology, endocrinology, immune-mediated and infectious disease through the delivery of efficient and effective service to clients and referring private practitioners and the provision of high-quality patient care. Faculty are also expected to be involved in professional and community outreach, continuing education, committee service, and curriculum development.

Candidates will be given at least 50% off-clinic time to meet expectations for developing an extramurally funded research program in small animal internal medicine that includes collaboration with other scientists, advising of graduate student research, and publication in peer-reviewed journals. Candidates with emerging or established research programs can expect to be supported with a highly competitive research start-up package.

Faculty are encouraged to develop collaborative endeavors with clinicians and scientists within the College and across the University. Excellent collaborative opportunities are available in the Departments of Veterinary Biosciences and Veterinary Preventive Medicine within the College as well as other units across the University campus, including the comprehensive OSU Health Sciences Center, which is within walking distance of the College. The College of Medicine (http://medicine.osu.edu), Davis Heart-Lung Institute (http://heartlung.osu.edu), and College of Pharmacy (www.pharmacy.ohio-state.edu) are a just a few of the resources available to clinicians and research scientists interested in small animal internal medicine and related fields. Additionally, collaborative opportunities exist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital (http://www.nationwidechildrens.org) and Riverside Methodist Hospital (http://www.ohiohealth.com).
