The Carle Illinois College of Medicine is seeking individuals from all backgrounds to perform the role of a Simulated Patient in the training and evaluation of medical students. Simulated patients are interviewed and examined (just as you would be by your family doctor) by male and female medical students. Simulated patients may see students on a one-to-one basis, or there may be a group of medical students working with the simulated patient in a controlled teaching session. Simulated patients will be trained to accurately and consistently recreate the history, personality, physical findings, and emotional structure and response pattern of an actual patient. We are not currently accepting applications at this time.
Simulation Center Manager
The Simulation Center Manger is responsible for providing leadership in the planning, analysis, implementation, and evaluation of simulation education and operations of the Jump Simulation Center at Illinois. The Manger is responsible for ensuring simulation center processes support data-driven decisions in the development and execution of center objectives, including supervision of the Simulation Center Technician. The Simulation Center Manger works collaboratively with Carle Illinois College of Medicine (CI MED) and College of Engineering faculty and administration both internally and externally to drive educational outcomes and programs. The Manager will employ a high degree of judgment and independence to effectively solve complex problems, build strong internal and external relationships, deliver well designed processes and maintain a thorough and organized simulation and evaluation model. The Simulation Center Manager reports administratively to the Center’s two Co-Directors, and reports functionally to the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs in the Carle Illinois College of Medicine for simulation education content.
Postdoctoral Research Associate
Outstanding candidates are invited to apply for a post-doctoral research associate position in the laboratory of Dr. King Li, Dean of the Carle Illinois College of Medicine, with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The laboratory is located at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology with focus on using image-guided energy deposition to remotely control cells and drugs in vivo. Current projects include using MRI-guided focused ultrasound to control stem cells and immune cells in vivo for blood brain barrier permeabilization and tumor therapy. The Li lab is also interested in developing stable isotope labeling of genetic materials as contrast agent for in vivo MRI.
