The Lewis Katz School of Medicine – Basic Science Faculty Opportunities

The Lewis Katz School of Medicine – Basic Science Faculty Opportunities

 

Located in the heart of an economically distressed and diverse urban area, the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University is acutely aware of the impact of the national systemic problems related to the lack of health equity and access to affordable, culturally responsive healthcare. In response, we will address issues to promote health equity through education, care delivery, workforce development, and research. We recognize that an environment enriched with persons from varied backgrounds working to address health disparity enhances scholarly work and the development of a culturally aware and responsive healthcare workforce.

 

The Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University is committed to achieving a climate of inclusion that respects and affirms diverse backgrounds and life experiences. We recognize that excellence in all aspects of education, training, research, and care delivery can only be achieved when all students, faculty, staff, community members and patients experience authentic connection and engagement; feel supported; and are encouraged to participate and contribute to creating health equity.

 

Restructured in February 2021 with faculty experts representing multiple disciplines in each department, the Basic Science Departments at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine follow a contemporary construct. The aims of the structure are to optimize teaching and curricular evolution, advance mentoring and faculty development, and boost research productivity through novel interdisciplinary collaboration.
