    The American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC), an accredited institution founded in 1978 with over 4,000 medical graduates, invites applications for Introduction to Clinical Medicine (ICM) faculty position in the Department of Behavioral and Clinical Sciences. The Medical Sciences campus of AUC is located on the island of St. Maarten.  AUC has an exceptional faculty composed of clinicians and basic scientists who instruct an accomplished and committed body of students.

     

    Our medical students are highly motivated and are mainly from the USA and Canada.

After passing all prerequisite examinations, AUC graduates are licensed to practice medicine in all 50 states of the U.S.

     

    Education is the primary focus of the faculty. The academic year is divided into three semesters with a new class of students admitted each semester. Lectures and other educational responsibilities continue throughout the year. Effective teachers are sought, particularly individuals who are interested in improving medical education and who work well on a team. Research opportunities exist, primarily in the area of medical education.

The modules include communication skills, doctor-patient relationships, physical diagnosis, ethics, pathophysiology of disease, clinical problem solving and public health.

Small group interactive learning is an essential component of our program and thus experience in medical education including facilitating small group learning is desirable. The successful applicant should have excellent communication skills and a strong commitment to the development of patient centered clinical skills for future physicians.
