The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education at The City College of New York (CCNY) is searching for a visionary and energetic leader to Chair its Department of Community Health and Social Medicine (CHASM). The Department plays a critical and leading role in our mission-driven BS/MD program aimed at producing broadly-educated, highly-skilled primary care practitioners to provide quality services to underserved communities. The Sophie Davis School curriculum is centered on a comprehensive effort to educate our students in the social, economic, political, and behavioral determinants of health and disease, with a focus on population health and health care policy. The Department research agenda is centered on chronic disease epidemiology, health behavior, health policy, health services and community based research. The strategic vision for the Department includes: a) an expansion of its current educational mission to incorporate the teaching of additional clinical and clinical methodological skills in the basic science years of the undergraduate and medical student education; and b) strengthening of the current research foci and expansion of its research portfolio to include broader aspects of epidemiology and behavioral medicine, including clinical epidemiology. This expansion would take place by broadening and strengthening collaboration with other academic departments/institutions within and outside CUNY, public health organizations, foundations, and our affiliated clinical centers.
