The University has two campuses -- one in Downers Grove, Illinois and the other in Glendale, Arizona. More than 6,700 full-time students are enrolled in graduate programs in veterinary medicine, osteopathic medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, physician assistant studies, physical therapy, occupational therapy, nurse anesthesia, cardiovascular perfusion, podiatry, optometry, clinical psychology, speech language pathology, and biomedical sciences. Over 500 full-time faculty members and 400 staff members are dedicated to the education and development of our students in an environment that encourages learning, respect for all members of the health care team, service, interdisciplinary scholarly activity, and personal growth. The addition of veterinary medicine on the Glendale campus provides an excellent opportunity to train students following the principles of One Health at Arizona's first veterinary college. The college received full accreditation by the American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education in September of 2018. The College of Veterinary Medicine is housed in Cactus Wren Hall and in the Animal Health Institute. Cactus Wren Hall is a new facility with ample classrooms, teaching laboratories, research laboratories, conference rooms, and offices. The Animal Health Institute is comprised of The Companion Animal Clinic, the Equine and Bovine Center, and the Diagnostic Pathology Center. The Companion Animal Clinic is a modern and innovative veterinary hospital for small animals. The 110,000 sq. ft. building contains state-of-the-art medical, surgical, dental, and intensive care facilities. Additional patient services include small animal internal medicine, small animal soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, medical oncology, neurology, physical therapy, cardiology, urgent/emergent care, and therapeutic plasma exchange. A full range of endoscopic equipment, CT and fluoroscopy are also available. The Companion Animal Clinic also offers clinical pathology and microbiology laboratories, as well as a full-service diagnostic lab. In addition to outstanding clinical facilities and equipment, the Companion Animal Clinic houses a pharmacy, a large and well-equipped surgery teaching laboratory, simulated examination rooms for clinical communications training using standardized clients/patients, and ample conference and small-group meeting rooms. Adjacent to the Companion Animal Clinic is the Equine and Bovine Center, which houses large animal teaching and treatment facilities, and small herds of cattle and horses. The Diagnostic Pathology Center offers a full range of anatomical pathology and forensic pathology services and contains ample teaching spaces. We are seeking a faculty member who is enthusiastic about participating in the growth of a young veterinary college and contributing to shaping its teaching and clinical programs. Previous experience in an academic setting is not required, as our main focus is creating students that are Day-One ready veterinarians.
