 Description
The Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M University invites applications for a full-time Clinical Assistant or Clinical Associate Professor, 11-month, full-time, clinical track faculty position in Large Animal Emergency and Critical Care.

The academic home of this position is the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences at Texas A&M University. The successful clinical track candidate will have a major instructional role in the updated, integrated, and highly experiential pre-clinical DVM curriculum. The candidate will utilize innovative techniques and case material as a means of teaching professional students, and will develop well-organized, creative, and interactive lectures and laboratory materials for courses in the three pre-clinical years of the DVM curriculum.

In addition to didactic teaching, the successful candidate will also participate in patient care with the after-hours Emergency & Critical Care Service, which provides high level care to equine and food animal patients both overnight and on weekends. The selected candidate will contribute directly to this service in a collegial, collaborative, and team-centered manner to achieve the teaching and patient care missions of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences while participating collaboratively in research and other scholarly and academic citizenship activities.

At TAMU, pre-clinical teaching occurs in the Veterinary & Biomedical Education Complex (VBEC), a 330,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility which opened in August 2016. Located adjacent to the Large Animal Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, VBEC is home to a variety of educational venues for lectures, small group learning, and an array of hands-on skills training. The clinical skills lab provides low to high fidelity skills trainers including SynDaver surgical models and ultrasonography machines. This complex also houses the DVM Center for Educational Technologies, which provides pedagogical support to faculty for teaching and learning. Additionally, VBEC houses the Wellness Room, equipped with weights, treadmills, elliptical machines, and locker rooms, which are available to faculty, staff, and students in our college.

The Large Animal Hospital at Texas A&M is totally climate-controlled with separate facilities for isolation and theriogenology cases. The intensive care unit is fully-staffed 24 hours per day and 365 days per year. Clinical services in the hospital include equine orthopedic surgery, equine soft tissue surgery, equine internal medicine, equine sports medicine & imaging, equine theriogenology, and food animal medicine & surgery. Equine and food animal field services provide ambulatory services. An isolation ward is used for housing horses with potentially transmissible disorders. The imaging facilities within the large animal hospital include a dedicated ultrasonography room with numerous start-of-the art ultrasound units, 3 dedicated radiography rooms (3 digital radiograph units), and a full array of endoscopic equipment. There is an attached Diagnostic Imaging and Cancer Treatment Center which houses additional imaging equipment including a 3T Siemens Verio MRI, and a 40-slice Siemens computed tomography unit designed to accommodate both small animals and horses. Outdoor facilities include a covered lameness area and a covered riding arena, and a non-climate controlled theriogenology pavilion.
