A new era is unfolding at the University of Calgary in Canada’s most
enterprising city. We are setting ambitious goals for excellence in research and
teaching that result in an exceptional undergraduate and graduate student
experience. The University of Calgary is one of Canada’s top comprehensive
research intensive institutions, with more than 31,000 students in 14 Faculties,
85 Research institutes and Centres, and 6,500 faculty and staff members.
With new senior leadership, we are invigorated and we’re just getting started.
We are Canada’s most innovative medical school and one of the youngest
at just over 40 years old. Our accomplishments can be seen in areas such
as global health, research institutes that bridge disciplines and build on
unique community partnerships, and in the nationally and internationally
recognized innovative curriculum encompassed in our three year MD
program. As Dean you will be charged to energize, inspire, challenge
and engage your faculty, staff and students. You will encourage further
collaboration and interdisciplinary research within/between our seven
research Institutes, our Faculties and other national and international
partners. You will be a vital partner in shaping Alberta’s provincial healthcare
delivery and innovation systems to capitalize on the jurisdictional advantage
of our pan-Alberta healthcare system. You will embrace the research
aspirations of the Faculty that drives 40% of the research funding of the
University. As their leader, you will invigorate the Faculty’s hunger and
competitive spirit to drive research, teaching and service to a higher plane.
With an MD, MD/PhD or PhD, your credentials in research, teaching and
administrative leadership give you the requisite qualifications and credibility to
guide and grow this Faculty of Medicine. You will need to be strategic, nimble
and encourage partnerships within the Faculty, across the University as well
as with the broader academic and clinical communities locally, provincially,
nationally and internationally. Your ability to be an ambassador for the Calgary
community, open minds and raise performance levels will have long lasting
effects on enrolment, achievement and national and international reputation.
The University of Calgary welcomes diversity and encourages applications
from all qualified women and men, including persons with disabilities,
members of visible minorities, and Aboriginal persons.
