POSITION TITLE: Assistant/Associate Professor of Veterinary Epidemiology

Background
The College of Veterinary Medicine at Western University of Health Sciences (WesternU CVM) is committed
to the social responsibility of producing graduate veterinarians that are technically competent, professionally
astute, and cognitively adaptive to the future needs of global health security. To that end, WesternU CVM is
committed to graduating veterinary professionals who have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of
epidemiology and population health. Further, graduates must be skilled in the application of epidemiology in all
career settings.


The College of Veterinary Medicine provides a unique environment for a motivated faculty member to
contribute their knowledge in epidemiology to help prepare health professionals for the needs of the veterinary
profession.


With its founding principle of student centered learning, the curricular design at WesternU is novel and seeks to
challenge adult learners with an evidence based approach to scholarship. Epidemiology is delivered in all four
years of the curriculum. For first and second year students epidemiology is one of 12 basic sciences integrated
into the Veterinary Basic and Medical Sciences course which uses a problem based approach to learning basic
concepts in epidemiology with real world application. For third year students, a quarter of this clinical year is
dedicated to courses in applied epidemiology, public health, global health and food and feed safety. In the
fourth year students are given the opportunity to select from a multitude of national or international externship
experiences in epidemiology.


Another founding principle - excellence in clinical training through strategic community partnerships,
WesternU CVM is well positioned to provide its epidemiology faculty with multiple career building
opportunities. Our location in Southern California provides relatively easy access to a vibrant and diverse
general population, a complex and multi-tiered veterinary community, a vast array of animal related non-profit
organizations and proximity to multiple public sector agencies. WesternU CVM has fostered strong
relationships with veterinary professionals in area county departments of health, as well as with county, state
and federal regulatory veterinarians. They are integral partners in the education of our students. Our college is
teamed with municipal and privately owned animal shelters, with an expanding shelter medicine curriculum and
veterinary community outreach to underserved populations. WesternU CVM faculty are key players on the
national and international One Health stage. The college of veterinary medicine is also actively engaged in the
university Interprofessional Education Curriculum.
