Responsibilities

50% - Courses for medical students: Anatomy I and Anatomy II; Morphology II elective

Attend all course lectures for Anatomy I and Anatomy II
Give some of the lectures for Anatomy I and Anatomy II (2-5 lectures in Year 1; possibly more thereafter)
Teach all dissection lab sessions for Anatomy I and Anatomy II (team taught with other faculty, postdocs and graduate TAs)
Teach Anatomy Review Sessions (about 7 per year; one for each exam block)
Prepare and review “hot and cold” questions for review sessions
Prepare and review exam questions
Help set up the lab for practical exams
Help and supervise the grading of the practical exams
Responsibility for the preparation of all prosection materials (6 prosections per year; 2 cadavers per prosection)
Supervise the TAs and anatomy postdoc in the preparation of the prosection materials and do some of the dissection
Help the TAs and anatomy postdoc prepare for lab sessions by supervising their preparation of the prosected material
Attend and help organize weekly meetings of the teaching staff
Manage distribution of teaching staff in the dissection rooms
Respond to emailed questions from students
Meet with and tutor struggling students
Supervise dissections in the Morphology II elective

25% - Gateways Program

Gateways students will watch the regular Anatomy I and Anatomy II lectures

Lecturer will answer email questions from Gateways students
Lecturer will hold office hours for Gateways students
Lecturer will give some of the Anatomy I & II lectures and be present in the lecture hall for all of them for first year (2017-18)
after year 1, Lecturer could be present in room with Gateways students (when not lecturing herself/himself) to answer questions in real time, if lecture stream can be paused; or give lectures live to Gateways students starting Year 2 or 3, depending on how the Gateways program develops

Reading and study materials for Gateways

Lecturer will select and sequence the timing of specific readings from anatomy, physiology and embryology texts
these readings are necessary to fill in for lab material the Gateways students will not be getting
readings also necessary to help Gateways students prepare for, and get the most out of, the prosections

Gateways Small Groups

Lecturer will provide study questions (and answers) for Gateways small groups
questions based on small-group questions for the med students, but will require modification
Lecturer will be the liaison for small group leaders (hold office hours?)

Exams will consist of subset of Anatomy I and II multiple choice “lecture exam” questions

Lecturer will select the questions and write more if needed
care will have to be taken to make certain the questions cover only material the Gateways students have covered

Prosections

Gateways students will attend one prosection presentation per block, in groups of 6 students

Lecturer will prepare all prosection material for medical Anatomy and Gateways prosections (will require many weeks of dissection work every year)
Lecturer will lead the prosection sessions for Gateways students
for the first year, 2017-18, Gateways prosections will be 1 hr long and based on the same material prosected for the medical anatomy class
in later years, the Lecturer will likely want to prepare some material particularly for the Gateways students and take more time with them (longer sessions or 2 sessions per block)

The new Lecturer will be the liaison between the medical anatomy program and the Gateways Program

Lecturer will attend Gateways Program meetings
Lecturer will provide Anatomy tours for recruiting Gateways students
