Virginia Western, located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Roanoke Valley, is accepting applications for Adjunct Faculty for our Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) Program in the School of Health Professions. The Physical Therapist Assistant Program at Virginia Western Community College, currently in the candidacy stage of accreditation, is seeking adjunct faculty to assist with delivering face-to-face curricular content to PTA students. The program intends to admit its first class in Fall 2022 with adjunct positions starting in the Fall semester of 2023.

Adjunct faculty positions are appointed on a course-by-course, semester basis as needed. Faculty are expected to maintain currency in their teaching discipline and in trends in community college education.

• Experience treating patients with neurological diagnoses
• Experience in outpatient orthopedics
• Experience training pediatrics patients in any setting

At this time, assigned adjunct teaching will likely occur during daytime hours, so candidates must have availability to teach during typical business hours.

Upon hire, faculty will be required to demonstrate effectiveness in teaching and student evaluation and should expect annual evaluation of these skills.
