The Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM), in Las Cruces, New Mexico invites nominations and applications for the position of Dean and Chief Academic Officer.

As a developing medical college, the Dean will be responsible for its progress and growth as it pursues regional accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission and the eventual expansion into a health science university offering new health related degree-granting programs.

The Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine seeks a leader with integrity and a proven record of successful leadership, orchestrating well-planned growth in academic programs, accomplishments in garnering financial support, strong fiscal management skills, and collaborative leadership style. BCOM seeks a leader with a commitment to teaching excellence, research, student success, and professional preparation.
