Brief Job Description
The Department of Nutrition at the University of Tennessee invites applications for a 12-month, non-tenure track clinical faculty position with an expected start date of August 1, 2020. This faculty member will play an integral role in course development, implementation, and success of a novel Future Education Model Graduate Program, which bridges applied coursework in our ACEND-accredited Didactic Program in Dietetics at the undergraduate level with a new M.S. concentration in Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics and reorganized experiential learning components from the ACEND-accredited Dietetic Internship. This program uniquely integrates experiential learning in a stepwise progression from simulations to practice, emphasizes mentoring of senior-level undergraduates by graduate students in the practice setting, and culminates in a clinical outcomes data monitoring and analysis project using the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Health Information Infrastructure (ANDHII) platform. Graduates of this program will be eligible to take the registration examination for dietitians.
Responsibilities will include development and implementation of new applied course content which will be grounded in evidence-based practice, the Nutrition Care Process, client-centered practice, interprofessional practice within clinical practice sites, and competency-based learning. Course development and implementation will occur in close coordination with the director of the Future Education Model Graduate Program and other program faculty. Teaching responsibilities will include instruction of undergraduate students and, if holding a doctoral degree, graduate students in the M.S. concentration in Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics. Service activities will be as assigned.
