The individual would be appointed as an Assistant or Associate Professor, non-tenure clinical earning in the Department of Family, Internal and Rural Medicine (FIRM). The CCHS Rural Programs comprise a 25-year-old central strategy of the College and the UA School of Medicine to develop a workforce for underserved rural communities of Alabama.
