Description of Work Unit

 The C. Wayne McIlwraith Translational Medicine Institute (TMI) is operated under the Department of Clinical Science (College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences) at Colorado State University (CSU). The Institute provides a safe, secure, state-of-the-art facility for faculty, scientists and staff for collaborative efforts in the area of research, entrepreneurial business development and continuing medical education aligned to the institute's mission and vision. The TMI is a 130,000 sq. ft. building that opened in December 2018.

TMI Mission - Create novel biologic therapies and learning opportunities uniquely focused on improving the lives of both animals and humans by fostering diverse collaborations of leading scientific minds in a state-of-the-art facility that encourages entrepreneurial models that optimize innovation timelines.

The CSUVetCE team @ TMI seeks to provide an unparalleled continuing education (CE) experience every day; something that we refer to as "CE Elevated". We believe that people, animals and the planet can be improved when inspired learners, engaged educators and relevant learning experiences collide; that is the purpose, the passion and the why behind our quest to provide CE Elevated experiences each day. 

Our team is comprised of 3 pillars of stakeholder experience: 1) Overall onsite CE program experience, 2) CE laboratory experience and 3) the online experience. We host up to 75+ onsite, hands-on CE courses per year. As it pertains to this online pillar position, all of these courses require time-sensitive loading of some registrant-accessible content (course notes, supportive reference materials, course surveys, CE certificates, etc.) into our LMS. In addition, we have a small, but growing library of online CE course content that requires registrant access to innovative educational materials including recorded lectures, videos, interactive exercises and quizzes). Growth of the online course library and integration of it with our greater CE course menu is an area of strategic emphasis. Some of our onsite courses utilize the online course content as required pre-requisites. Our CE courses include a wide variety of small animal, equine and human medical courses to graduate veterinarians, certified technicians and medical professionals throughout the year. Each of our publicly facing courses is published on our website including a compelling course description, video promo / course invitation, course agenda, faculty, sponsorship, pricing information and registration access.

We work with our AV and communications teams to develop marketing materials for inclusion on our website and distribution through various channels including social media, email blasts, listservs, and our course sponsors. We are a small, but rapidly growing group and now is a great time to jump aboard the CSUVetCE team for the right person. In our busy times, our team can have a series of 7-day work weeks; the responsibilities for which we work as team to distribute amongst ourselves.
