Position Opening for Colleges Advisory Program Faculty

The School of Medicine Colleges Advisory Program (CAP) is seeking talented, full-time clinical educators for position openings in CAP beginning July 1, 2018.

CAP core faculty members are asked to make a 4- to 5-year commitment to serve in the following roles:

  • Longitudinal advisor for 20 medical students (5 per class);
  • Small group instructor for the Year 1 Clinical Foundations of Medicine Course ( 3.5 hours weekly in Quarter I/II)
  • Active participant in programs and activities related to school’s student-faculty learning community, “the Colleges,” which support students’ professional development.

CAP faculty also participate in a variety of teaching and advising activities across the Genes to Society curriculum, and join students for social and milestone events over the four years of medical school. As compensation for this effort, the Dean’s Office provides 0.2 FTE salary and fringe support, based on gross salaries up to $199,700 (in keeping with NIH salary guidelines for grant support). This support is commensurate with the time and effort anticipated to fulfill teaching and advising responsibilities.

Ideal candidates for CAP are full-time JHUSOM physicians who are passionate about teaching and building longitudinal relationships with students to help them shape their professional identities, and to devote a meaningful portion of their career effort to this role. Faculty members with at least a few years of experience at Hopkins as well as training in education (e.g. faculty development) are preferred. The CAP provides ongoing training and support for one’s professional development.

Interested faculty may also contact Genevieve Chawluk (, academic program administrator, to receive an application. All candidates require a brief letter of support from their department chair or division director, which should include a statement of commitment to protect a portion of their time (0.2 FTE) for the duration of their tenure in the Colleges.

Applications for this year’s recruitment cycle will be accepted at the Colleges Program Office ( until end of day on April 4, 2018.
