Through transdisciplinary research and interprofessional education, our students, staff and faculty embrace public health as a catalyst for individual and community change in pursuit of the common good. We invite applications for a non-tenure track instructional faculty member to assume the role of Program Director of the B.S. in Health Professions beginning in Summer or Fall 2019.

Position and Qualifications. The Program Director will manage an undergraduate program with more than 1,000 students who plan to seek entry in graduate programs in Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Athletic Training, Recreational Therapy and other health professions. The ideal candidate will have experience in curriculum development and assessment, student performance and progression monitoring, academic program management, and strong teaching abilities. Applicants should have a doctorate (ABD applicants will be considered) and three or more years of teaching experience.

The emerging department with 40 faculty and 1,300 students will produce practitioners and researchers who are prepared and acculturated to improve health and lived experiences.

Key elements of the department include a vertical integration and balance of programs across undergraduate, professional and doctoral levels; continued advancement of the science, education and practice of individual professions; fostering all faculty and students as leaders in individual disciplines and also as interprofessional educators and practitioners; and establishment of partnerships in education, research and service between clinical and public health practitioners.

The College. Devoted to an interprofessional environment for academic programming and research, the College of Public Health, a CEPH-accredited school of public health, is a constellation of academic units of public health, social work and health profession disciplines, enrolling 4,300 students. The College’s research focuses on social, behavioral, and environmental inquiries, medical/health interventions, and basic science and is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, and other major funders.  The College has recently launched a new Center focused on Community Engaged Research and Practice.

The University. Temple is an urban, research-intensive Carnegie R1 university located in historic and culturally rich Philadelphia, the nation’s 6th largest city. The city was ranked 3rd by the New York Times as a world tourist destination. The National Science Foundation ranks Temple among the top 100 universities in the country for research expenditures.
