This position will lead graduates to develop innovative solutions for careers in the health care workforce using foundational knowledge in health care administration, health care systems, and health policy. Concepts of leadership, informatics, economics, and the delivery of evidence based care are emphasized. Faculty in the program are multidisciplinary, and include both tenure-track and clinically trained professionals who work together to create, teach and disseminate foundational knowledge. This is a fixed-term appointment that is renewable annually. Subsequent one-year appointments may be offered, under the same terms and conditions, at the discretion of the college and university.
Through teaching, academic programs, service and research, all faculty at the College of Health Solutions address one or more of our three major areas of focus: 1) The systems of health care and the health needs of populations; 2) Health and human performance of individuals across the lifespan; 3) Personalized interventions through precision health. Across these areas, we work to address Grand Challenges, complex and difficult health problems which require transformative collaboration, translational research and innovation. We are particularly interested in making an impact on populations with significant health disparities.
Responsibilities for this position include teaching undergraduate courses in health care economics and finance on-line and/or in-person at the downtown Phoenix campus and providing service to the college and relevant degrees. The position may include teaching in- person at either the Polytechnic campus or West campus. Applicants must present evidence of teaching experience and a strong commitment to high quality teaching at the undergraduate level. Typical workloads for instructional faculty are consistent with 80% teaching (usually equivalent to four courses per semester) and 20% service.
