This position is a 9-month (Fall and Spring Semester) appointment with the possibility of summer teaching.  In addition to a primary teaching focus, job responsibilities include scholarly activity such as conference presentations, manuscript submission, and grant activity, and service to the program, college, university, and community. Anticipated appointment date is Fall 2015. The ideal candidate will excel at creative teaching with small class sizes, thrive in a bi-national setting, embrace the opportunities to work with underserved groups, and flourish in an independent work environment.


This appointment has primary responsibilities in the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) Programs teaching the human anatomy courses and, if qualified, courses in the clinical curricula. Other courses, such as anatomical kinesiology and exercise physiology, may be taught in the Department of Kinesiology. The anatomist’s responsibilities include maintaining the cadaver dissection lab and observing all Texas Anatomical Board rules and regulations.


THE PROGRAMS: Both the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program (http://chs.utep.edu/pt/) and the Occupational Therapy Program (http://chs.utep.edu/ot) were founded in 1991 and enroll students at the graduate level.  Thirty-six Doctor of Physical Therapy students and 24 Master of Occupational therapy students are admitted annually.  Each cohort attends classes and clinical rotations for eight consecutive semesters, graduating 31 months after entering the program. Anatomy is one of three courses that students from both programs take together while enrolled in the DPT and MOT Programs. Collectively, the current full-time and adjunct faculty have expertise in acute care, cardiopulmonary, integument, service learning, orthopedics, neuromuscular rehabilitation, geriatrics, pediatrics, sensory integration, and home-based services.

 

THE DEPARTMENT:  The Department of Rehabilitation Sciences includes four academic programs: Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech-Language Pathology, and Rehabilitation Counseling. All units offer the graduate degree (DPT, MOT, MS in SLP, MRC), and the department has 228 graduate students. In addition, a pre-professional undergraduate degree in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences is also planned. The department’s 19 full-time faculty members are widely recognized for their research and teaching on rehabilitation sciences in a Hispanic border context and actively participate in the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences PhD Program, which is jointly administered by the College of Health Sciences and School of Nursing. Faculty members are encouraged to collaborate in teaching and research in other programs across the University and with clinical partners and other regional universities. . The Department thrives in newly renovated facilities with easy access to the UTEP campus, Fort Bliss, public transportation, major medical centers, and downtown El Paso.  A $2.3 million renovation was recently completed, updating and expanding teaching laboratories, gait analysis, home care, driving simulation and virtual reality research facilities, and a clinic for on-site faculty practice, clinical teaching, and research.

 

THE COLLEGE: The College of Health Sciences provides teaching, research, and service related to the applied health sciences (http://chs.utep.edu). It has five departments (Clinical Laboratory Science, Kinesiology, Public Health Sciences, Rehabilitation Sciences, and Social Work), a cooperative Pharmacy program with the University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy, and a collaborative relationship with the University of Texas at Houston School of Public Health-El Paso regional campus. Strong collaborative ties also exist with the UTEP School of Nursing, the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, and Paul L. Foster School of Medicine in El Paso. The College is staffed by over 60 full-time faculty members, serves over 2100 students, and is nationally recognized for its innovative research in border health, and Hispanic health and health disparities. It has a record of success with NIH and external health research funding. The College faculty members have been awarded $15.6 million in external funding during the past five years for its innovative health research projects. College faculty members conduct research that spans basic and clinical science, from community to global health. Their research expertise includes health education and promotion, health literacy, chronic and communicable disease prevention and management, maternal-child health, nutrition, exercise science, disability and rehabilitation sciences, social stigma, and mental health. A cadre of graduate students assists faculty in conducting a variety of projects relevant to improving health outcomes in the U.S.-Mexico border region. Our $60 million 138,000 sq. ft. building on the main campus houses state-of-the-art clinical and research laboratories, innovative teaching and clinical simulation spaces, and faculty and administrative offices.

 

THE UNIVERSITY: The University of Texas at El Paso is an emerging national research university at the heart of the U.S.-Mexico border committed to the ideals of access and excellence. A leader among Hispanic-serving institutions, UTEP enrolls over 23,000 students – about 80 percent of them Hispanic – and is the only doctoral research university in the nation with a majority Mexican-American student body. UTEP is designated by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as “Community Engaged” and by the US Department of Education as “Hispanic-Serving.” UTEP faculty are nationally recognized for their commitment to student success, teaching, research, scholarship, and artistic expression. 

 

UTEP comprises 8 colleges and offers 70 bachelor’s, 76 master’s, and 20 doctoral degrees, with more in development. UTEP’s over $83 million in research spending a year ranks the University among the top 200 universities in the nation; and its over $40 million in federal research spending ranks fourth among all Texas public universities. UTEP is currently undergoing a transformation, which will benefit from over $300 million in recent building expansions, renovations, and infrastructure improvements. The center for intellectual capital in the region, UTEP has awarded more than 110,000 degrees since its founding in 1914. UTEP is one of the major economic engines in the Paso del Norte region, generating $369 million in local business volume and 7,050 jobs, and contributing $452 million in household income.

 

In its 2014 national university rankings, Washington Monthly again ranked UTEP in the top 10.  In addition, UTEP maintained its #1 ranking as the nation’s leading university in fostering student social mobility. Our success in achieving both affordability and high quality in the low-resourced US-Mexico border setting requires a deep commitment by all UTEP faculty and staff, and our many friends and supporters. That commitment ensures that students who entrust us with their aspirations are given every opportunity not only to pursue them, but to engage in enriched educational experiences on our campus that will prepare them to compete successfully with their peers from across the globe. UTEP is not only redefining public higher education regionally and throughout Texas; our impact is being strongly validated across the nation. UTEP also offers exciting Division I athletic programs; award-winning theater, dance, and music programs; art galleries and a museum; and continuing and lifelong education programs open to the public.
