Free open Job in North, South & Central America Basic Science and Clinical Skills Faculty Members at R3 Education

Location: Saba, Dutch Caribbean, Nevis, Grand Cayman

Closing Date: Open until filled

The medical schools of R3 Education; Saba University School of Medicine (SUSOM), Medical University of the Americas (MUA), and St. Matthew’s University School of Medicine (SMUSOM) are three of the world’s leading international medical schools, with nearly a 30-year history of educating outstanding physicians.  In 2019, R3 Education joined Global University Systems (GUS). GUS is focused on becoming one of the world’s most dynamic, inclusive, and diverse education organisations. This includes a portfolio of 30 institutions around the world including universities in the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, India and the Caribbean. 

All three medicals schools are expanding their faculty with full-time teaching positions in several basic science disciplines.  In addition, our medical schools are also looking for several dedicated clinicians to teach foundational clinical skills.

At SUSOM and MUA, our faculty teach using a progression beginning with foundational concepts in the basic and clinical sciences, leading to organ systems focused courses that integrate each foundational discipline to both normal human function and disease.  At SMU, the instruction is discipline-based, integrated with clinical skills and integrated with the Cayman Island’s world class healthcare system.

Each comprehensive curricula applies the basic sciences of medicine to clinical scenarios and applications throughout.  Along the way, clinicians teach clinical skills necessary for success in the Clinical Medicine portion of the curriculum which is in the second five semesters and located in our partner hospitals in the US.

The average first-time pass rate on the USMLE Step 1 was 95-99% at each school, and our students earn top residencies at medical centres across the US and Canada. All three schools have comprehensive basic science curricula with integrated clinical skills instruction.


Located just 28 miles (15 minutes by air) from St. Maarten, the island of Saba is small, quiet and extremely safe with something for everyone to enjoy: from quaint villages and mountain hiking trails to pristine scuba diving and well-regarded inns and restaurants. The beautiful and historic island of Nevis provides an opportunity to immerse yourself in a new culture and a different way of life that you may never have again. Life in Grand Cayman offers the diverse accents and idioms of the local people, with stunning beaches and great restaurants and nightlife that make the transition to this new country easy, as well as exciting. In short, each campus has a distinct character, but each provides a perfect place to focus on teaching the physicians of tomorrow and, when time allows, enjoy the best of what the Caribbean has to offer.
