We invite applications for one (1) Acting Assistant Professor to join an exciting and growing Sports Medicine team with long established national and international successes in the areas of sports medicine clinical care, education and research.

Acting Assistant Professors hold annual appointments that align with a 12-month service period (July 1-June 30) and may be reappointed to subsequent annual terms. Faculty with 12-month service periods are paid for 11 months of service over a 12-month period (July-June), meaning the equivalent of one month is available for paid time off. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2023, or soon thereafter.

The Department of Family Medicine is committed to promoting health equity and creating an inclusive culture that values each individual’s unique contributions. We are committed to building a culturally diverse faculty and strongly encourage applications from underrepresented backgrounds. The successful candidates will be expected to support the department’s commitment to incorporating Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) into every aspect of our practice.

Position Description

This position expects that the faculty hired will participate in departmental activities for the Department of Family Medicine, while their clinical work will be focused on Primary Care and Sports Medicine. They are expected to participate in the teaching mission of the Department, especially as it relates to their clinical work and expertise. This 1.0 FTE position consists of clinical scheduled time (0.8 FTE) and administrative/teaching time (0.2 FTE).

The successful candidates will practice clinically at the UW Medical Center-Northwest Sports Medicine outpatient clinic practice sites (60%) and/or the UW Sports Medicine Center at Husky Stadium (20%).

Clinical duties will include direct patient care in a mixed practice model of both primary care and sports medicine. Total clinical time will be eight half-day clinics per week, and will include working with Family Medicine residents and medical students while in clinic at least two half-days per week. The specified clinical activities will always be contingent on availability of space.  Academic time should be used to develop clinical research projects and contribute to the education of medical students, Family Medicine residents and the sports medicine fellow.

The successful candidates will be expected to participate in the full spectrum of clinical practice including procedural and diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound. Other procedural opportunities such as radiofrequency ablation and Tenex are based on training background and the needs of the sports medicine section. Sport coverage opportunities will include local high school, youth, and club sports with the potential for growth over time. We also expect that the successful candidates will participate in clinical research and support the training of the new generation of family physicians and primary care sports medicine physicians.
