The Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine announces an outstanding opportunity for two, full-time Clinical or Tenure Track faculty positions in small animal emergency/critical care medicine. Applicants must have a DVM or equivalent degree. Preference will be given to candidates that are board certified by the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care or will be eligible to take the ACVECC certifying examination in 2019 or 2020. It is expected that the candidate will demonstrate a commitment to excellence in patient management; service to clients and referring veterinarians; and teaching/mentoring of professional and graduate students.
Clinical-track candidates will be assigned up to 70% time in clinics, including clinical teaching of students and advanced training of interns and residents. Sponsored research is not required for clinical track faculty, yet clinical research, publications or other scholarly activities to advance clinical veterinary medicine are expected and encouraged. Tenure-track faculty will be given at least 50% off-clinic time to meet expectations for developing an extramurally funded research program that includes collaboration with other scientists, advising of graduate student research, and publication in peer-reviewed journals.
The appointees will join a program designed to maintain four faculty criticalists and five residents in the Small Animal E/CC Service, as well as three large animal/equine E/CC faculty members. The Department supports a faculty of over 70 clinical specialists, educators, and investigators along with extensive training programs for professional students, interns, residents, and graduate students. The College of Veterinary Medicine (www.vet.osu.edu) is ranked 4th among North American colleges of veterinary medicine by US News and World Report. The Ohio State University (www.osu.edu) was recently ranked third in the national listing of best places to work in academia, according to The Scientist magazine. Columbus is the 15th ranked city by size in the United States (population over 850,000) and supports a vibrant, multifaceted community (www.experiencecolumbus.com).
The candidates will work in a comprehensive academic veterinary medical center with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment including digital radiography, ultrasonography, computed tomography, 3 Tesla MRI, 128 Slice CT, Interventional Radiology/Medicine suite, mechanical ventilation, hemodialysis, non-invasive cardiac output monitoring and dark field microcirculatory imaging. Primary responsibilities include year-round clinical teaching of professional students, interns, and residents and patient care activities related to all aspects of small animal E/CC medicine. Teaching responsibilities will also include participation in didactic lectures and laboratories. The successful candidates will share supervision of a full service, 24-hour, 40-cage intensive care unit, as well as a busy 24/7 emergency receiving service (which sees approximately 8000-8500 cases/year). The ICU is staffed with registered veterinary technicians (several with VTS E/CC certification) with a mission for excellence in patient care. The ICU is currently managed in an open style with all specialty services providing primary patient care of the patients in the unit. It is anticipated the appointee will interact closely with the faculty and programs in all small animal clinical disciplines and the large animal E/CC program. Faculty members are also expected to be involved in professional and community outreach, continuing education, committee service, and curriculum development.
