Dietitians who make significant and ongoing contributions to the UBC Dietetics Major through preceptor, internship coordination or classroom teaching roles are eligible to apply for a UBC Clinical Instructor appointment with the Faculty of Land and Food Systems (LFS). These are non-paid Faculty appointments with UBC.
To be eligible for a Clinical Instructor appointment, you cannot already hold a paid teaching appointment at UBC. Applicants in preceptor/internship coordination roles must be registered with the College of Dietitians of British Columbia.
You must meet at least one of, or an equivalent combination of, the following criteria over the past 12 months with the expectation of a continued role:
1. Internship coordinator or co-coordinator at a British Columbia health authority-based dietetic internship site;
2. Preceptor: minimum of 3 weeks per year as primary or co-supervisor of a UBC internship module experience, including responsibility for student evaluation;
3. Classroom educator within campus courses and/or internship: minimum 6 hours per year
A call for applications occurs in the spring of each year. Subscribe to the Preceptor Interest Group Listserv to ensure you receive a notice when new applications are being accepted.
