    The Department of Anatomy in partnership with the Department of Clinical Medicine seek a radiologist to teach in the Foundations of Medicine curriculum in semesters 1-4 as well as develop teaching modules for the clinical clerkship program in semesters 5-10. Lecture and small group formats are used for curriculum delivery and faculty are expected to be proficient in teaching in both settings. The Department of Anatomy has a modern, highly advanced technological medical imaging space that can be used for small group teaching and a variety of educational uses and projects. Interviewing and physical examination skills labs, case-based small group learning, a robust Standardized Patient program, and high fidelity medical simulation using Laerdal SimMan3G technology, are all employed for the Clinical Skills curriculum delivery within the Department of Clinical Medicine. In addition, RUSM pre-clinical students have a number of required activities with live patients in community clinics and the Princess Margaret Hospital in Roseau. Curriculum activities and content are supported by behavioral learning objectives and proficiency expectations are clearly defined.
