Job Opportunity

Two Health Law Faculty Positions

 

Quinnipiac

University

School

of Law invites applications and nominations for two lateral or senior level Health Law faculty appointments. The law school seeks to fill these positions over the next two years. Candidates should have a record of outstanding scholarship and teaching, including a full-time faculty appointment at a distinguished law school, and an interest in building a health law specialty of national prominence at the

Quinnipiac

University

School

of Law. 
Salary, benefits, support for research and other special needs are negotiable and highly competitive.

 

Quinnipiac

University

School

of Law has an extensive and growing health law program. For six years we have offered a health law certificate to our J.D. students who devote 15 credit-hours to health law specialty courses, written work and clinical work; in recent years, nearly 10% of our students have earned that certificate. Next fall we will supplement that J.D. program with an LL.M in health law, and we are expanding our already-impressive cadre of full-time and adjunct health law faculty members. The law school houses a health law journal and a health law clinic, and offers students numerous health-related externships with area providers, insurance companies, and pharmaceutical firms. The law school’s Center for Health Law & Policy sponsors health-related educational efforts and symposia. We also have an active student law-and-medicine society, and send a team to the annual health law moot court competition each year.  In conjunction with Quinnipiac’s

School

of

Business

, we offer a joint four-year JD/MBA degree in health law and management. Recently, a joint health-care compliance training program put together by our law and business schools became the first university-based educational program to receive accreditation from the Health Care Compliance Association.

 

Quinnipiac University has highly respected undergraduate and graduate programs in nursing, physician assistance, physical therapy, pathology, occupational therapy, medical laboratory sciences and health management. Our university library has an excellent collection of health-science and health-management materials.
