The successful candidate will principally teach human development to graduate and medical students and serve as a facilitator in an integrated medical curriculum that includes small and large group case-based learning.

For over 37 years, MUSM has focused on educating physicians and healthcare professionals to meet the primary care and health care needs of rural and medically underserved areas in Georgia. Emphasizing interactive and problem-based teaching strategies, our student-centered faculty provides a conceptual and practical foundation that equips graduates to be discerning consumers and innovative producers of knowledge across a variety of medical and community settings, as well as academic institutions. Through teaching, scholarship, and service, students and faculty work closely to have local, regional, national, and international impact.
