Associate Dean, Faculty Affairs

The Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) is Canada's newest and only medical school hosted by two separate universities. Laurentian University in Sudbury and Lakehead University in Thunder Bay are pleased to share a medical school with a mandate of strong social accountability-one that is committed to the education of high-quality physicians and health professionals and internationally recognized as a leader in distributed, learning-centred, community-engaged education and research.

Since its establishment seven years ago, NOSM has developed and delivered Distributed Community Engaged Learning as a distinct model of medical education and health research; achieved full accreditation for its MD program, multiple residency programs, Continuing Education Professional Development (CEPD), and the Northern Ontario Dietetic Internship (NODIP) program; focused scholarly attention on Northern Ontario, rural, remote and Aboriginal health issues through publications and conferences; and graduated physicians and dietitians committed to providing quality health care to Northern Ontarians. NOSM is currently seeking an Associate Dean of Faculty Affairs to join its executive leadership team.

Reporting to the Dean, the Associate Dean of Faculty Affairs is responsible for the leadership, direct supervision, mentorship and evaluation of NOSM's Division Heads and related faculty. The Associate Dean will also build commitment to NOSM among medical and health professionals in the north and recruit high-quality academic staff to the school. Moreover, the Associate Dean will oversee administrative matters related to the office of Faculty of Affairs and the Continuing Education and Professional Development program, ensuring successful planning, development, funding program delivery and evaluation.

The successful candidate must have a Medical Degree, PhD, or other suitable professional qualification and a successful career in executive administration within a healthcare, public, or academic setting. A background in continuing medical education, faculty development or professional development is required. It is important to note that the successful candidate must also quality for a faculty appointment within an appropriate medical school division.

If you have the above qualifications-along with a passion for medical education and northern, rural, remote, Aboriginal or Francophone health issues; strong leadership and decision making skills; and a high tolerance for ambiguity and change-we encourage you to apply for this exciting role.
