Curriculum Lead, Student Professionalism

The Undergraduate Medical Education (UGME) Office at The University of British Columbia (UBC) invites applications for a Curriculum Lead, Student Professionalism appointment. The time commitment is 0.1 to 0.2 FTE, equivalent to one-half to 1 day per week (negotiable) for a three-year term appointment, with the possibility of renewable after successful review.

The MD program is comprised of four geographically distinct sites including the Island Medical Program (IMP), Northern Medical Program (NMP), Vancouver Fraser Medical Program (VFMP), and the Southern Medical Program (SMP). Since expansion began in 2004, the UBC Faculty of Medicine, in partnership with the provincial government, academic partners University of Victoria, and the University of Northern British Columbia, and all six health authorities, has more than doubled enrolment, and distributed education, clinical training, health sciences research and teaching across BC. The distributed medical undergraduate program aims to improve upon the low number of rural and Indigenous students seeking medical careers, while also allowing students to complete their training in rural and underserved communities, where, as studies suggest, they are more likely to return to practice once their training is complete.

Reporting to the Director of Curriculum, UGME, the successful candidate will have experience and excellence as a teacher; experience in curriculum development and delivery; familiarity with CACMS accreditation standards; and excellent interpersonal, communication, and collaborative negotiation skills. The appointee will be expected to provide educational leadership and planning of the Student Professionalism Curriculum from Years 1 through 4 and participate in the required committees.

The successful candidate will hold an MD and should have certification from the Royal College or CFPC, or equivalent. The successful candidate will show knowledge of the University of British Columbia MD Undergraduate Program and curriculum, and must hold an existing UBC Faculty Appointment.

A letter of application, accompanied by a detailed curriculum vitae and names of three references should be directed to:

Dr. Adrian Yee
Director of Curriculum, UGME

Subject Line: Curriculum Lead, Student Professionalism
