About the Role:
Lecturers in Cardiology have a 42-week clinical commitment, and their primary responsibilities are clinical teaching, service, and resident mentoring in the Section of Cardiology. The successful candidates will enjoy a wealth of opportunities in a highly collaborative and productive academic environment.
The Section of Cardiology employs 1 ACVIM board-certified cardiologist and 2 dual ACVIM/ECVIM boarded cardiologists.

The Section also employs a cardiology research fellow in order to facilitate clinical research and trials, which primarily involve client-owned animals.
More than 30 American and European Diplomates of various certifying Colleges work within the School’s hospital and support the Section of Cardiology. The Section of Cardiology collaborates with intramural units such as the Perelman School of Medicine and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia as well as a variety of extramural collaborators at veterinary schools across the US and world, providing Lecturers with excellent opportunities for professional growth and networking.
