Clinical Regional Coordinator (Temporary Employee Pool)

Primary Purpose and Essential Functions:
Under the direction of the Clinical Director, the role of the Clinical Regional Coordinator within the Physician Assistant Program at University of the Pacific is to develop and maintain clinical sites within the specified region, to be involved in the evaluation of the clinical curriculum, and to assist with the clinical scheduling of students in the region. The Clinical Regional Coordinator is also responsible for maintaining a close working relationship with any on-site coordinators in an effort to stay abreast of conditions at each site, and to ensure that the School continues to provide a valuable rotation experience at each site. The Clinical Regional Coordinator is responsible for ensuring that clinical sites and preceptors are meeting the program expectations for clinical education.
  1. Responsible for development, training, evaluation, and retention of clinical rotation sites and preceptors within a specified geographic region; to troubleshoot concerns related to clinical students and/or rotation sites; to monitor student's progress on rotations and remediate student's academic needs; to assist in monitoring end-of-rotation examinations; to review preceptor and student evaluations, and to address concerns accordingly.
  2. Responsible for establishing affiliation agreements with clinical sites, insuring that students are meeting credentialing requirements at clinical sites during rotations.
  3. Provide guidance and direction to clinical faculty and staff involved.
  4. Other duties as assigned.

General Workload Distribution:Workload varies by semester, but is assigned by the Clinical Director in consultation with the Program Director and other faculty members. Specific workload and scheduling will be adjusted based on the faculty member's, as well as the Program's, needs. In addition to scheduled assignments, professional activities outside the school (presentations, consulting, etc.) will be supported, encouraged, and expected.

Promotion and Tenure & Annual Faculty Evaluations:
This is a non-tenure track position. Initial academic rank will be determined by the promotion and tenure committee, and will be based upon the individual's qualification and experience. Faculty members are assisted in assembling and maintaining a dossier, which provides documentation of their activities and accomplishments during their academic careers. This document is valuable in planning and maintaining appropriate balance in activities, but also is essential documentation for promotion review by the University. Faculty members' activities and accomplishments in the areas of teaching, scholarship, and service are evaluated yearly by the Program Director, with these evaluations being forwarded to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. Yearly evaluations may also be used to determine merit salary increases.

Other faculty members, both from within the home department and from other departments, may also be enlisted to assist in mentoring junior faculty members in career development. This mentoring activity can be highly beneficial for both the mentor and the protege, and is seen as a learning experience for all involved.
