The University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law, here, is seeking the founding Director for its new Center for Health Law. The position announcement notes:
The Director’s responsibilities will include strategic planning, fundraising, curriculum development, maintenance and growth of relationships with relevant local, national, and international scholarly and professional associations, scholarship production, teaching, and mentoring.
The Law School seeks to expand its health-law curriculum and related health-law opportunities for the purpose of assuming the leading role in the MidSouth in training health-care lawyers, promoting scholarship and discussion concerning health-care law and policy, and providing pro bono health care-related legal services to low-income individuals. This initiative is aligned with the University’s increasing emphasis on health-related education, demonstrated, inter alia, by the recent founding of the School of Public Health and a significant expansion of the School of Nursing.
Sounds like a great opportunity! Steven Mulroy, here, is chairing the search.
