Assistant/Associate Professor of Clinical Sciences
(Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine)

William Carey University invites applications and nominations for a Board Eligible/Certified DO or MD to teach Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine in the College of Osteopathic Medicine. The faculty member will hold the academic rank of either Assistant or Associate Professor, commensurate with the experience and credentials of the candidate.

See the Search Profile at for details.

Founded in 1892, William Carey University is a private university with campuses in Hattiesburg and Tradition, MS, and Baton Rouge, LA. The College has experienced steady growth, with undergraduate and graduate programs offered across seven colleges and schools.

The William Carey University College of Osteopathic Medicine (WCUCOM) increased the size of its first-year class this year from 100 students to 160 as part of a three-year expansion plan authorized by the Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation. The plan will ultimately result in the medical school’s enrollment doubling from 400 students to 800 students.

With the increase in class size, the Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) Department needs to grow to maintain a critical faculty-to-student ratio for the hands-on lab training. The faculty desires to keep the small-group ratio no higher than 1:10 to provide quality education.

The Assistant/Associate Professor will provide instruction specifically in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. The ability to teach in one or more of the biomedical/preclinical courses or clinical disciplines would be beneficial. The candidate will have administrative responsibilities commensurate with the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor.
