The Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM) invites applications and nominations for a visionary academic leader who would serve as Associate Dean and Regional Campus Director for IU School of Medicine-Bloomington. With the IU Health Bloomington Hospital under construction as a new regional academic health center, the ideal candidate will also serve as the hospital's Chief Academic Officer. This is an opportunity for a transformational leader to build upon existing strengths and expand education programs. The Associate Dean and CAO will coordinate medical student education, residency education, and interprofessional education throughout the expanding regional health campus. Physically situated together, IUSM-Bloomington and IU Health Bloomington Hospital will offer opportunities for new approaches to UME, GME, graduate education, undergraduate education, and CME.
The juxtaposition and strong partnership with the IU Health Bloomington teaching hospital enables medical students at this campus to benefit from early clinical exposure and unique educational opportunities. With a strong commitment to education, IUSM-Bloomington hosts medical students in all four years of training, which includes a long-standing longitudinal integrated clerkship program and use of high-fidelity simulation. In addition to programs for medical students, IUSM-Bloomington offers nationally recognized PhD program in anatomy education; a cell, molecular, and cancer biology PhD program; and an undergraduate (baccalaureate) minor in medical sciences for students attending IU-Bloomington.
IUSM-Bloomington is home to 26 full time faculty and over 125 volunteer faculty. It fosters strong collaboration among investigators through centers, institutes, and groups that reach across departments, schools, and campuses. The research interests of its faculty are broad and include molecular and cellular biology, genetics and epigenetics, cancer biology, and medical education. With a shared interest in understanding the relationship between structure and function in health and human disease, these groups provide research opportunities for undergraduates, medical and graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows.
Reporting to the IUSM's Executive Associate Dean for Educational Affairs and Institutional Improvement, ideal candidates will have strong experience in academic medicine, including leadership experiences that have proven to advance the tripartite mission of clinical service, education, and research. Minimum qualifications include an MD, PhD, or equivalent, significant leadership with the educational mission (UME, GME or both), successful peer-reviewed publication of research/scholarship, and academic credentials for an appointment at the rank of Associate or Full Professor.
