Job Summary:

The Department of Medical Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, School of Veterinary Medicine invites applications for Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor, 12-month renewable position. The successful candidate will join 2 other board-certified cardiologists who are responsible for teaching, research, and clinical service on the UW campus. The School of Veterinary Medicine is a collegial, collaborative environment that offers specialty care with board certified experts in allied services including large animal internal medicine, small animal internal medicine, neurology, dermatology, emergency and critical care, radiology, radiation and medical oncology, special species, ophthalmology, anesthesia and pain management, and dentistry. The Cardiology Service has an annual caseload of ~1,250 patients and it is approximately 80% dogs and 20% cats. The Cardiology Service also provides service, on a consultation basis, for horses, farm animals, and exotics. The expectation would be for the individual to develop an independent extramurally funded research program with an approximate distribution of effort of 50, 25, 20, 5 (research, clinical service, didactic, laboratory and graduate teaching, and other service).

This implies approximately 12 weeks of clinic duty annually. The primary caseload is outpatient, and there are often cardiac emergencies and inpatients on service. Tenure track candidates will be expected to perform research in a chosen area of interest and UW campus has ample opportunity for collaboration within the SVM, but also with colleagues in the School of Medicine and Public Health, School of Pharmacy, School of Nursing, and School of Biomedical Engineering. UW-Madison considers the School of Veterinary Medicine to be a major factor in its overall success as a top five university in terms of awarded federal funding. The school is also a major factor in Madison's emergence as a hub of commercial biotechnology, including regenerative medicine technologies.

The UW-Madison Cardiology program has 4 residents and 2.5 nurses/assistants. We have a brand-new Small Animal Hospital that we will be moving into in March 2024. There will be 3 echo bays with GE and Philips echo machines. We have built a state-of-the-art hybrid cath lab with a Philips Azurion 7 series imaging system, which will provide us the ability to perform routine and complex interventional procedures. The cath lab will also be equipped with EP study capabilities.

The UW-Madison campus and the surrounding area have many enriching opportunities. Madison was named the most bike-friendly city; the Dane County Farmers' Market is one of the largest in the nation; Madison has the most restaurants per capita of any U.S. city; Madison consistently ranks as a top community in which to live, work, and play; and the university is nationally recognized for academics and athletics.

The position is offered at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor rank, depending on qualifications and is available once a suitable candidate is identified with a projected start date of June 3, 2024 (this is flexible).
