The medical center in Galveston is seeking again accepting applications for its first Faculty Ombudsman. The 20% position will serve as a confidential and informal resource for the faculty. Applicants must have a PhD or MD, and have held a faculty appointment in an academic institution. Preferred qualifications include formal training in conflict management or alternative dispute resolution; experience at a university medical center; record of prior contributions in providing institutional service in a private of public sector health care setting.
UTMB has sought to fill this position since the Summer of 2008, but there has been a dearth of qualified external applicants. In January 2011, the faculty senate considered loosening the application requirements, but ultimately did not. No salary or closing date indicated.
