Core values of academic excellence, inclusiveness and diversity, integrity and transparency and effective stewardship, makes CWRU an extraordinary place to work and develop an academic career.

The School of Medicine offers a unique opportunity for educational and research collaboration.  Its outstanding basic science scholarship and affiliations with University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, the Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth Medical Center, the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center and other clinical facilities throughout Ohio offer outstanding opportunities for collaborative scholarship and practice. We anticipate faculty within this program will collaborate with multiple Departments and Centers, including two national VA Centers for Rehabilitation Research and Development, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Department of Neurosciences, as well as contribute to initiatives within the University and School of Medicine, such as our Brain Health Initiative and Model Spinal Cord Injury Center.  Close collaboration with the Center for the Advancement of Medical Learning provides an exemplary resource for the development of state-of-the-art teaching/learning methodologies.  This, combined with the unique School of Medicine Inquiry (IQ) based curriculum model and CWRU-developed HoloAnatomyTM, offer a unique opportunity for an innovative Physical Therapy education program.  After initial accreditation, the School of Medicine is open to the development of joint degree programs at the PhD and Master’s level, and/or clinical residency programs.

Responsibilities and Duties:  The Director is expected to develop and lead, in consultation with other School of Medicine leadership, a DPT program consistent with the University and School visions and missions.  This will require curricular development, consultation with space and facilities for program space, collaboration with other offices to ensure appropriate program and student support, and submission of program authorization documentation to Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).  Director will be responsible for recruiting core and affiliated faculty and building a strong program through leadership development and mentorship.  This position will involve development of the core educational program and a well-rounded faculty scholarly research agenda.  The Director will be responsible for ensuring the program meets all CAPTE accreditation standards and deadlines.  The Director is expected to maintain and further develop a line of research inquiry in human performance and rehabilitation personally and/or within the Department, to mentor scholarship among the Physical Therapy faculty, and to develop research collaborations with other investigators at CWRU.  In his or her administrative capacity, the Program Director will report to the office of the Dean of the School of Medicine. 

We anticipate approximately 50% effort will be devoted to program administration, with remaining effort to be split between teaching, research and clinical activities.

Required Qualifications:  The candidate must be a licensed physical therapist (PT) in a US jurisdiction.  Candidate must have an earned PhD or equivalent advanced academic doctoral degree and have the academic record to hold the rank of associate professor or professor at CWRU, with the rank dependent on publication record, reputation as judged by peers, and national level achievement.  Candidates should have a minimum of six years of full time higher education experience, with a minimum of three years of full-time experience in a physical therapist education program advising and teaching DPT students and demonstrate a desire to develop an innovative Physical Therapy curriculum.  Candidate should show a record of professional peer-reviewed publications and presentations at national and international meetings.  Candidate must be able to demonstrate excellent oral and written communication skills, a track record of leadership as well as faculty and student development. Candidate must have experience with the CAPTE accreditation process.

The Temple University College of Public Health, an interdisciplinary college devoted to an innovative educational and research environment that brings an interprofessional and transdisciplinary perspective of health, wellness, and social welfare, invites applications for non-tenure track faculty members in Physical Therapy to begin Fall Semester 2018.

Position and Qualifications. We seek motivated individuals with strong interpersonal communication skills and experience in teaching for faculty on the instructional track. Student mentoring and participation in University and community service is expected. Interprofessional education, clinical research, and clinical practice opportunities are available. Although we seek faculty with experience in acute care or geriatric physical therapy practice areas, we welcome applications from persons with a history of in-patient and acute care clinical skills who can teach in multiple areas of the curriculum. Qualifications include a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) or equivalent entry-level degree from an accredited institution, eligibility for Pennsylvania licensure, and demonstrated interest or previous instructional experience in a DPT curriculum. Previous experience in education is preferred. Additionally, specialist certification by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties and a record of scholarship is preferred. Therapists with expertise in cardiovascular and pulmonary, geriatric, or clinical electrophysiology practice areas are highly desirable. We value diversity and seek individuals committed to inclusive practices in education and professional practice.

The Department of Physical Therapy. Comprised of 16 faculty, the Department enrolls 180 students in its accredited entry level Doctor of Physical Therapy program and its orthopedic residency. As part of the College’s emphasis on interprofessional education, the Departments of Kinesiology and Physical Therapy collaborate on joint MS and PhD degrees in Neuromotor Science. Collaborative opportunities exist with research centers including the Neuromotor Science Research consortium that contains state of the art motion analyses and virtual reality and immersive environments. PT faculty collaborate with faculty in many disciplines (e.g., engineering, computer science, psychology, radiology, medicine, nursing, pharmacology, podiatry, and dentistry) and with local institutions including Temple University Hospital System, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Shriners Hospitals for Children, Magee Rehabilitation Center and Moss Rehab. Our academic space is located in the newly opened Aramark Student Training and Recreation (STAR) complex and features applied laboratory spaces with the latest instructional technology, lecture halls, smart classrooms and a demonstration/teaching apartment with wheelchair-height kitchen counters and appliances, as well as a fully accessible bath and bedroom. The Department hosts an interprofessional pro bono clinic dedicated to meet the needs of uninsured and underinsured members of the North Philadelphia community. This practice venue gives many faculty members a venue to maintain their clinical practice and teach at the point of patient care.

The College. A CEPH-accredited school of public health, the College of Public Health is a constellation of 9 academic units of public health, health profession and social work disciplines, enrolling 4,600 students in 8 undergraduate and 28 graduate degree programs. The College has seen remarkable growth and organizational expansion in programs, research profile, and interdisciplinary collaboration.
