The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis seeks innovative and highly motivated master’s-degree or doctorally prepared physician assistants and nurse practitioners to join the faculty as clinician educators. Clinician educators serve in a unique role providing both clinical care and clinical teaching activities, including didactic sessions and clinical skills lab, along with curriculum development, student assessments, and coordination of course activities related to the didactic and clinical phases of the program. This search is open to all specialties of Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. While all NPs and PAs are welcome and encouraged to apply, the school is particularly interested in Women's Health, Mental Health, and Pediatrics.
Part-time and full-time, non-tenured positions at the Assistant and Associate rank in the Health Sciences Clinical Professor (HSCP) Series or full-time Clinical X Series are available at UC Davis Health, which is located on a modern, 140-acre campus in Sacramento, California. The Sacramento campus is home to the School of Nursing, School of Medicine, UC Davis Medical Center (including a level-I trauma center and burn unit, and a full range of outpatient services), a fully accredited Children’s Hospital, and an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.
