Professor - MPH Director
DIRECTOR—GRADUATE PROGRAM IN PUBLIC HEALTH
Eastern Virginia Medical School/Old Dominion University
Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) and Old Dominion University (ODU) are seeking candidates for the Director of our Graduate Program in Public Health. This joint program was established in 1997 to award the MPH degree, and is fully accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH). The Program enrolls approximately 60 new students per year, and currently offers tracks in Environmental Health, Epidemiology, Health Management/Policy, and Health Promotion. Courses are taught during evenings, on weekends, and via several distance learning technologies. This position reports to the EVMS Dean of the School of Health Professions, and is responsible for providing regular updates to an Oversight Committee representing EVMS, ODU, and the public health community. This position is expected to interact with the ODU Center for Global Health and the EVMS M. Foscue Brock Institute for Community and Global Health.
QUALIFICATIONS: The position requires a doctorate in public health, medicine, dentistry, or an allied health field. Candidates without a public health doctorate must have an MPH degree. Candidates should have successful administrative, managerial, research, and teaching experience at the Professor or Senior Associate Professor level. Demonstrated experience in program or curriculum development and evaluation is essential. Because this program has a central role in fostering public health practice in eastern Virginia and using public health skills to improve health status, ability to establish and maintain productive relationships with community constituencies is required. A history of success in attracting external funding and resource development is desirable.
The ideal candidate has a proven track record in higher education, and a thorough knowledge of the education and training required of the public health workforce. We seek an individual who functions well in a team environment, and who can inspire and motivate students while being an effective role model for faculty and colleagues. Salary and faculty rank are commensurate with experience. The anticipated starting date will be mutually agreed upon.
QUALITY OF LIFE: Located in the city of Norfolk, EVMS serves the southeastern region of Virginia known as Hampton Roads. The area is rich in history, culture and education. It also provides easy access to the Outer Banks, mountains, Washington D.C., and the state capital in Richmond. Norfolk/Virginia Beach was Places Rated Almanac’s #1 metropolitan area for recreation.
