This faculty appointment is non-tenure track. This is a position with clinical practice and educational responsibilities at the Perry County Health Department in Marion, Alabama, and other clinical teaching sites in Perry County, approximately 80 miles southwest of Birmingham. The faculty member will be responsible for coordinating the educational initiatives of MSOP in rural west-central Alabama. Primary activities are providing pharmacist-enabled primary and preventive care to patients and teaching MSOP students in didactic and experiential settings. The faculty member is expected to maintain a model practice of patient-centered care which will provide a rigorous base from which to teach didactic and experiential coursework and to develop a program of scholarship. Additional duties consistent with an MSOP faculty position are expected, including campus-based meeting attendance and committee service.

Samford University is a nationally-recognized, comprehensive private institution located on a beautiful suburban campus five miles south of the Birmingham city center.

We have diverse interests and areas of focus, including biotechnology, drug delivery and design, pharmaceutics, pharmacokinetics, ambulatory care, community practice, drug information, geriatrics, internal medicine, long-term care, pediatrics, public health, psychiatry and others. We embrace the profession-wide vision of pharmacy practice to prepare pharmacists to be the health care professionals responsible for providing patient care that ensures optimal medication therapy outcomes.
