The mission of the Department is to inform the work and thought of physicians on 1) the social conditions and characteristics of patients, the social causes of illness and the social barriers to effective care; and 2) the social responsibilities of the medical profession. Members of the faculty apply their various disciplines to problems of the poor, elderly, chronically ill, and other categories of people with special health and medical care needs; questions of allocation distribution, organization and financing of health resources; and health and medical care problems of North Carolina. The Department carries out its mission through a variety of educational, research and service activities in several venues and almost always in the interdisciplinary collaboration throughout the Chapel Hill campus. The Department's research and on-going interests include: cultural anthropology and health, epidemiology, health economics, history of medicine and public health, literature and medicine, medical care organization, biomedical ethics, medical sociology, medicine and the law, preventive medicine, and public policy in health and medical care. The Department of Social Medicine, unlike other departments in the University, serves as an interdisciplinary department, and employs faculty and researchers from across the campus and beyond to accomplish its mission. This means that the administrative staff in the department must be exceptional people in terms of the ability to comprehend and coordinate activities across the wide array of constituencies served by the department. Social Medicine is a bridge between medicine and public health, and between medicine and the arts and humanities disciplines, and those who work here must have strong skills in translation and organization. The Department of Social Medicine functions as a single, centralized unit with three centers - The Center for Bioethics, the Center for Health Equity Research, and the Center for Genomics and Society. These three affiliated interdisciplinary research centers deepen and expand the Department's focus in bioethics, health disparities, and ethical, legal, and social implications of genomics. The breadth of the Department's mission, and the extensive and increasing involvement with both clinical and non-clinical programs in the School of Medicine and the larger University, pose major administrative issues and call for skills far beyond what is required in a basic science unit of the medical school or an arts and sciences department on campus. Equal Opportunity Employer The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, race, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or status as a protected veteran.
